The Housing Department at Tipperary County Council have just put a Part 8 planning application on display for a new social housing development of 8 houses on a 0.27 hectare site at Donohill, Co. Tipperary. The development will consist of 1 no. single storey, three bedroom house & 7 no. two storey, three bedroom houses
The site is an existing unfinished gap in the Cuil Greine estate in Donohill. The new houses will complete the existing run of houses on the west side. They will be accessed by the existing estate road and a new entrance onto the public road will not be required. The site is generally flat and it is considered that this development, by completing the run of houses in the existing estate, will be both suitable and welcome in the village of Donohill.
The essence of the design of this development of 8 houses is to ensure it retains its own identity as 8 new houses but also that they also sit in sympathetically as part of the existing estate and complete it on the west side. The existing estate incorporates a playground so all of the house have three bedrooms as it is expected that this location will be especially suited to families with small children.
