SOUTH Dublin County Council’s joint venture development of 1,034 homes on 29 acres of council lands at Kilcarbery in Clondalkin, has been approved by An Bord Pleanála.

The mixed-tenure development will include 310 social housing units (30 per cent of the development).

The council say the development is the “first of its kind” envisaged as part of the major urban sites initiative under Rebuilding Ireland.

Adwood Ltd, a consortium of established Dublin builders Adroit and Maplewood, will develop the site.

Adwood will pay the council €38m and deliver 310 social housing units at competitive rates over four years, according to the council.

In return for state support through the Local Infrastructure Housing Activation Fund (LIHAF) of €2 million, the developer has also committed to delivering 50 units at prices discounted to the market.

The 724 private homes include a range of three- and four-bed houses as well as one-, two- and three-bed apartments.

The tender also includes an 847 sq m community building which will be handed over to the council. A crèche and retail unit will also be included as part of the development.

The Kilcarbery development is part of the council’s €1 billion investment plan for building 4,500 new homes in the county in the coming years.

Daniel McLoughlin, Chief Executive of South Dublin County Council, said: “This is a vital element of our overall council-led housing strategy to deliver 4,500 homes over the next few years.

We must now get on with commencement on site at the earliest opportunity and look forward to the development of this new community.”
