Plans for two new houses in the Cluan Enda estate, off the St Alphonsus Road, have been been given the go ahead following a planning appeal.

Conphil Development Ltd granted conditional planning permission by Louth County Council last July to build two dormer style townhouses along with entrances on to the existing road to the rear garden of 36 Cluan Enda.

The application included new boundary repositioning to the existing house and all associated ancillary works.

However, those plans were put on ice last August after May Buchanan lodged an appeal with An Bord Pleanála.

The case was heard recently with An Bord Pleanála deciding to grant permission subject to a number of conditions being met.

They found that the “proposed development would not seriously injure the amenities of the area or of property in the vicinity, would be acceptable in terms of its response to flood risk and would not exacerbate flooding elsewhere, would be acceptable in terms of traffic safety and convenience of road users and would not be prejudicial to public health.”

While an inspector recommended permission be refused, the Board considered “that a small-scale infill development on a zoned and serviced site such as this would not be unacceptable, notwithstanding the underlying concerns about flood risk in the general area, which is a larger issue not related to the development of the site.”

In February 2016 Conphil Development Ltd had submitted an application for four semi-detached houses on the site but this never came to fruition as the application was deemed to be incomplete.
