Date Published : July 1st, 2020    Published By : admin

Two housing and development projects by Monaghan County Council, consisting of 56 properties in total are progressing well.

Monaghan County Council has appointed through tender competition Lowry Construction Ltd to complete 4 derelict unfinished houses and construct 28 new houses on a derelict site in Scotstown bound between the Scotstown-Smithborough and the Scotstown-Rosslea roads. The site was acquired by Monaghan County Council through the Derelict Sites Act 1990 to resolve the derelict nature of the unfinished housing development.

Monaghan County Council received Stage 4 Funding Approval on the 27th January 2020 from the Department of Housing, Planning and Local Government under the Rebuilding Ireland programme.

The Luí na Gréine development consists of 32 properties including 4 two-bedroom single storey houses, 12 two-bedroom two-storey houses, 12 three-bedroom two storey houses, and 4 four-bedroom two-storey houses. The overall project budget is approximately €7 million including site investigations, design fees, construction costs and utility & statutory fees.

Local Architectural firm Wynne, Gormley and Gilsenan Architects is the Employers Representative and Lead Designer to deliver the project along with Alan Traynor Consulting Engineering, Cuilinn Group and FJD Surveyors. Part 8 Planning consent is in place and Detailed Design is complete with the homes designed to the highest quality for modern living providing a Building Energy Rating of A3 and above.

The project is advancing well with the first houses estimated to be available for occupation in 2021 in a phased approach.
