Further extension sought for housing development at Baltray



A further extension of duration of retention and permission for a housing development near Drogheda is being sought.

Agrio Limited has made a number of applications to Louth County Council in respect of a development under construction at Braghan, Baltray.

The site was granted approval previously under ref. 15/851 and 08/925 subsequently extended under 13/402 and extended under 18/675.

The revisions proposed involve minor amendments to 1 house type and the replacement of 9 houses with an alternative house type. As such, there will be no change to the overall number of dwellings currently permitted on the site (i.e. site development works to accommodate 25 detached dwellings under permission 18/675 and 2 detached dwellings under permission 15/851) with no reduction in parking or open space for the development.
