Receiver aims to keep plans for new Priorland estate on track
A local building firm who are currently in receivership have applied to Dundalk Town Council for an extension of planning permission to build 143 new homes at a site in Priorland in Dundalk.
Kinler Developments Ltd, now operated by receivers Joe Anderson and William Kennedy of Colliers International, originally applied for planning permission for the residential development in July 2007.
They were given the go ahead for the project by Dundalk Town Council in April 2008 but it would be just over 12 months later when the project was finally allowed to proceed following an appeal to An Bord Pleanala.
Trading from Stapleton House, Kinler Developments Ltd had planned to construct 122 two storey townhouses, comprising 63 three beds and 59 four bed units. They were also plans for 21 apartments, consisting of 6 one beds, 13 two beds and 2 three beds in a four storey apartment building, which was to encorporate balcony areas with a roof garden, open space areas and 300 car park spaces, 42 of which were to be underground.
The proposed development also comprises a two storey crèche, while they also had permission to raise the ground level of the site by c1.5m.
Access to the site was to be provided via Priorland Gardens, off the Dublin Road.
The housing was never built initially due to the property crash but the receivers clearly see it as a future possibility, with the site worth more if it has full planning permission for such a development.
Seventeen residents in Priorland Gardens had initially objected to the plans but it was granted planning permission by An Bord Pleanala in April 2009 subject to a wide range of conditions.
