Planning granted for 75-unit Mayo housing development

PLANS for a 75-unit housing development at Snugboro, Castlebar, have been given the green light.

Bucko Developments Limited are the project developers, and it will consist of a mix of housing types - detached, semi-detached and terrace homes.

Existing housing developments adjacent to the lands are Knights Park and Foxfield.

Ten observations were received by Mayo County Council in respect of the original submission, which had been for 79 houses.

Matters raised included density, open space provision, access, flooding, and traffic.

The council granted permission subject to a number of conditions.

The proposed name for the development is to be based on local historical or topographical features or other alternatives acceptable to the council.
