Proposal for two new houses on Chapel Road in Haggardstown rejected
Plans for two new houses on the Chapel Road in Haggardstown have been rejected by Louth County Council.
Carmel Stapleton applied to the local authority in March for outline planning permission for two new dwellings on the road to the rear of Jackie Murphy’s pub, off the Dublin Road.
She had also sought connection to the local services and permissions for the revisions of boundaries of an existing dwelling house.
The application was refused on the basis that the proposed development “by virtue of its scale within the subject plot size will be out of character with the existing pattern of residential development in the immediate vicinity and would represent overdevelopment.”
The local authority also determined that the two detached dwellings would be “detrimental to the visual amenities of the area and is, therefore, contrary to the proper planning and sustainable development of the area.”
