Planning permission granted for 96-home development

Planning permission has been granted for a 96-home development on the outskirts of Waterford City.

Magna Construction Ltd. made the application to Waterford City & County Council in December 2021 for permission to construct 90 2-storey semi-detached dwellings, and 6 two-storey terraced dwellings.

The site is at Mountneil, Carrickpheirish in Gracedieu.

Planning permission was granted by the local authority this week, subject to a number of conditions.


These include a Connection Agreement with Irish Water prior to the beginning of commencement works, a final agreement on road and footpath layout including turning spaces and junctions, and the installation of a wheel wash at the entrance of the development for the duration of construction works.
