183 new homes proposed for Jigginstown in Naas

More housing is planned in Naas

With an increasing number of new housing estates under consideration in County Kildare, another application has been submitted for Naas, with 183 new homes and a childcare facility proposed for Jigginstown.

Ardstone Residential Partners Fund ICAV wants to build 183 dwellings comprising 16 two-bed two-storey terrace dwellings; 134 three-bed two-storey terrace and semi-detached dwellings, and 33 four-bed two-storey semi-detached and detached dwellings.

The entrance to the homes, if approved, would be located off the Naas Inner Relief Road.

The developers want to close off the existing temporary vehicular access road to Primrose Garden and access Primrose Garden through the new estate.

The company lodged the plans for the 15.8 acre site on November 4.

Submissions can be made by December 8 and a decision is due from Kildare County Council on January 7 next year.

At the time of going to print, the application had yet to be validated by Kildare County Council.

This means the local authority has to ensure all the documents are present and the forms are filled in correctly.

Once an application is validated, it is passed onto the planners.

If it is declared invalid, a new application can be lodged.

Demand is high for new homes in Naas with prices higher than in nearby towns such as Newbridge or Kildare.
