The Respond! Housing Association are seeking to convert a local shop unit into a five bed house for social housing needs.

The Dublin-headquartered association, who were founded 35 years ago in 1982, have earmarked a shop unit at Riverwell Close in Toberona for conversion.

Respond already operate a childcare centre called Hidden Treasures in Riverwell Close, which they helped build in 2002. The estate contains 33 family homes and 8 homes for older people and those with special needs. There is also a community building on the estate which houses a teen parent support programme, an afterschools programme, and various other youth programmes.

Respond! have applied to Louth County Council for planning permission to convert the vacant shop opposite Dealgan Nursing Home into a five bed dwelling.

Works would include internal refurbishment works to the existing 139.41sqm building, new windows to the external façade, new rooflights, a 26.22sqm new build extension to the southern side of the building and a new front boundary wall with bowtop fence enclosing a new garden to the north and west of the existing building.

A decision on the matter is due by September 6th.
