Another major residential development planned for Donegal

80 new homes planned for Mount Avenue Dundalk

An application has been made to build a total of 56 residential units at Drumrooske Middle, Donegal town

Plans have been lodged to build more residential houses and apartments in Donegal town.

An application has been made to build a total of 56 residential units at Drumrooske Middle.

The application by Felix Gillespie is for 26 three-bedroom two-storey semi-detached dwellings, 16 two-bedroom two-storey terraced dwellings and 14 duplex apartments. The plans include access roads, pedestrian footpaths and pedestrian crossings, the creation of a new access off the adjoining access road; the construction of public open space amenities including a children's play area and landscaping features, and car and bicycle parking facilities.

The plans are the latest for housing developments in Donegal town where concern has been expressed about a shortage of housing. A decision on the application is due to be made by the end of next month.

In November an application was submitted for a major development of 80 dwellings and various developments including a leisure centre with swimming pool, a coffee shop, and office blocks at Mullans and Doonan. 

Plans have also been lodged recently to build two detached bungalows, four semi-detached bungalows, 18 two-storey houses, and 12 apartments at Bluestack Drive, Drumrooske West, Donegal town.
