A planning application has been lodged with An Bord Pleanála for 708 new homes at Cherry Orchard in Dublin. The proposal, by The Land Development Agency and Dublin City Council, would be the second large development involving the two parties and the largest so far. The submission relates to a 6.27 hectare site owned by DCC and if approved would see 547 cost rental and 161 social housing units being built in the first phase. There would be 16 blocks within 9 buildings ranging in height from 4 to 15 storeys. Read the full story here.
