Green light given to plans for 196-unit residential build

By Aideen O'Flaherty

PLANS for the construction of a 196-unit residential development on Second Avenue in Cookstown Industrial Estate have been given the green light by An Bord Pleanála (ABP).

The developer, Pyrmont Property Developments Limited, lodged a fast-track planning application for a 196-unit residential development on Second Avenue in Cookstown Industrial Estate last February.

A decision on the application was originally due in June, but the decision was delayed as ABP decided that the development would be the subject of an oral hearing, which was recently held in ABP offices in the city centre.

The developer received planning permission for the development from ABP on July 24, including permission for the demolition of an existing 2,590 sq m industrial building and the construction of the apartment units, to form a ‘build to rent’ housing development. It is proposed that the development will contain 45 studio units, 48 one-bed units, eight two-bed (three-person) and 95 two-bed (four-person) units, all to be housed in four six- to nine-storey blocks over basement.

Pyrmont Property Developments Limited previously secured planning permission for the construction of 107 apartments at the same location last August.
