The approval of planning permission by An Bord Pleanála for a Strategic Housing Development (SHD) at Dunshaughlin East, Dunshaughlin, Co. Meath, has been announced today.

The development will be located on a 28.3 hectare site at lands to the north of the R147 / Dublin Road in the eastern part of Dunshaughlin. It will be built on residential zoned lands and is proposed as a planned extension of the town through a ten-year planning permission.

Located south of Kellett’s Grove and Coldrick’s Pass, to the east of Dunshaughlin Business Park, the site is adjacent to the residential development at The Willows, which is currently under construction.

No third-party objections were raised in response to the planning application, and the site will be developed and built by GEM Group, which has over four decades of building experience in Ireland.

A development plan will now be put in place for the site, with work commencing in the fourth quarter of 2019, and the first homes delivered in third quarter of 2020. This will be a follow on to the 222 housing units at The Willows scheme in Dunshaughlin which is currently being developed by Gem Group over the period 2017-2019.

The development comprises 913 residential units, consisting of 505 houses, 186 duplex units and 222 apartments on the site. Ninety of the homes will be allocated for social housing requirements. It will also feature neighbourhood centre facilities including a childcare centre, two retail units and a primary healthcare unit/gym.

The approved application includes significant open space areas, such as playgrounds, as well as pedestrian and cycling infrastructure, making it a popular location for first-time buyers and families. The development will also deliver a substantial section of the planned Dunshaughlin Outer Relief Road.

The Department of Education has recently agreed to acquire adjoining lands from GEM Group for a new educational campus and are shortly expected to apply for planning permission for a new primary school on the site, while new playing pitches will be provided for Dunshaughlin Youths Soccer Club, in collaboration with Meath County Council, on lands to the east of the development.
