It was announced yesterday that full planning permission has been granted by An Bord Pleanála to Cairn Homes for a housing development at Farrankelly, Delgany, Co. Wicklow.
The development provides for 426 new homes comprising 245 houses, 93 apartments and 88 duplex units within an overall site of 52 acres. The site is located on the outskirts of Delgany village with views of both the Wicklow mountains and the Irish sea.
The development will feature over 11 acres of active open space which will include a sports pitch as well as a tennis court and an all-weather multi-use pitch, a children’s play area and an informal kick-about area. This will be complemented by 10 acres of additional open space incorporating a 650 metre pedestrian and cycle route greenway located along the northern boundary and separately running and training areas.
Cairn Homes claims that at the heart of the development is a residential amenity building which will contain a well-appointed multi-purpose residents room, gym and management facilities, with stepped access opening out into the adjacent open space.
According to Cairn Homes, "Farrankelly will be a unique residential development where our residents and the wider community will benefit from this broad range of amenities right on their door-step, while our residential amenity building will support and enhance the sense of community within the development."
