Planning permission lodged for Co-op Houses in Ballymun at Baile Na Laochra

11 April, 2016

Dublin City Councillor Noeleen Reilly has said she is delighted to see planning permission has been lodged for the co-op houses in Poppintree which was the subject of much debate after years of delay and recent issues around the Modular Units.

Speaking from Poppintree today she said,

“I am delighted to see that planning permission has been lodged for 49 co-op houses in Poppintree.  

The houses will be a mix of 2, 3 and 4 bed units and will be a welcome addition to the area.

O’Cualann Co-housing Alliance has worked tirelessly to get this development of the ground. 

I would hope that this model once completed can be replicated across Ballymun to give local people the opportunity to buy their own home at an affordable price. 

 It will also help improve the social mix in the area which we currently struggle with.”

She further added,

 “The chosen site for the Modular units really brought this issue to a head.  Families had waited over ten years for these homes and at times with very little support from the council.

Construction work is due to commence in July and I would hope the homes will be well on their way to being built this time next year.”
