A CASTLETROY housing estate is set to be completed after permission was sought to develop.

A CASTLETROY housing estate is set to be completed after permission was sought to develop.

All but two houses in the Cairnsfort Estate in the Golf Links Road, Castletroy, were complete when the developers Bellisle Properties collapsed.

Now, the owners of the site, Forge Parkhead Properties Ltd have sought permission to complete two remaining houses in the estate, as well as upgrade a number of other units.

According to plans set to be lodged with Limerick County Council, the Dublin-based firm is looking to retain the layout of houses 43 to 50 in the estate, as well as retain the car parking layout, and extensions.

In order to complete the final two properties, this is required.

Deirdre Kiely, one of the directors of Forge Parkhead Properties, explained: “There are two incomplete houses in the estate, and we need planning permission to complete these two. There are some other ‘tidy up’ issues in relation to amendments. This is the nature of the application. The development is complete in all other respects, and is being occupied.”

She confirmed that they will be appointing new builders to complete the two incomplete houses.

Forge Parkhead Properties Ltd have a fortnight in which to submit planning papers to Limerick County Council.

The local authority will then set a date by which it will make its final decision.
