Further information on major Birr housing plan

Significant further information has been submitted on plans for a major housing development in Birr.

Liam Walsh & Company Limited had lodged a planning application for a housing development of some 73 units at Tullamore Road, Townparks, Birr, in October 2020.

Offaly County Council had initiated a number of further information requests and the application is currently at the clarification of additional information stage.

The latest receipt of further information has prompted the publication of a notice highlighting the lodging of significant further information and revised plans.

The application is now for 92 housing units, including 80 two-storey, three-bed semi detached houses of five different types, 10 single-storey three-bed semi detached houses and two two-storey, four-bed semi-detached houses.

The project site is located to the rear of the Lidl store off the Tullamore Road, and stretching across to the Banagher Road and south to McAuley Drive.
