A planning application has been lodged with Wexford County Council for the construction of a three-storey nursing home facility on the outskirts of Enniscorthy.

The application was submitted to the local authority by Green DCBM Ltd and makes provision for a nursing home building comprising a gross floor area of 5,505 sqm.

The development, if granted, will have capacity for 103 bed spaces and will be located at Clonhaston.

The new application is in lieu of a previous application relating to the same site in which permission was granted for a pharmacy, offices and medical centre.

Permission is now also being sought for alternations and moving the location of a a two-storey childcare facility building, that was previously granted permission, to a new location site beside the proposed new nursing home.

The application also makes provision for all associated site works including changes to an attenuation pond and BMX pump track at the Green Hill, An Cnoc Glas, Clonhasten.

The original planning permission for the pharmacy, offices, medical centre and childcare facility was granted as part of a larger mixed-use development.

A number of different reports were submitted to the local authority in relation to that application including those relating to traffic and transport assessment, an archaeological assessment report, Natura impact statement, construction, environmental and waste management plan and noise impact statement.

In his submission cover letter the applicants stated the current planning application ‘is to replace those buildings with a nursing home’.

A similar application was refused permission in December, 2021, and the applicants stated they have since liaised with the relevant departments within Wexford County Council and reviewed issues raised in the planning report relating to the initial refusal.

The proposed nursing home, in addition to the 103 bed spaces, will also incorporate a visitor room that will be able to accommodate overnight sleeping.

There will be an additional ambulance set down area and delivery spaces at the nursing home and also provision of EV charging points with a communal buggy sharing area to also be included.

There will also be 28 bicycle spaces in close proximity to the main entrances to the nursing home and childcare facility.

In their cover letter the applicants noted that the public open space provision for the application site is 20 per cent.

The applicants also proposed that if the planning submission is successful that construction of the nursing home and childcare facility will begin shortly after permission is granted.
