South Dublin County Council approved the construction of 41 new social homes at St Mark’s Avenue, Clondalkin at Monday’s council meeting.
The development will include nine bungalows that will be designated specifically for older person’s housing.
The proposed social housing development will be built at undeveloped lands off St. Mark’s Avenue, St. Mark’s Grove, and Rowlagh Crescent, situated in St. Mark’s Estate, Clondalkin.
This followed an extensive public consultation period that saw the plans revised following feedback from the public and elected members with the Council praised at the meeting for the process.
The development is also expected to provide the opportunity to deliver further enhancement to the areas around issues such as security and turning the nearby open space into a more usable area for children and further residents of the area.
