Decision on 343 home Kildare estate, park and new road due next week

A decision on a proposed new 343 home Newbridge housing estate, creche, distributor road and park is expected next week.

The plans are currently being discussed with An Bord Pleanála and a verdict is due on Thursday, November 8. 

Ardstone Homes wants to build this development at Kilbelin on the Athgarvan Road.

The project includes 283 houses in a mix of terraced and semi-detached styles, 48 apartments in two three-storey blocks and 12 apartments (maisonettes) in three pairs of semi-detached houses.

The developers say the existing derelict Kilbelin House will be renovated and extended to become a créche with parking and a dedicated outdoor play area.

The plans also comprise a landscaped linear park running around the site adjacent to the River Liffey with a dedicated pedestrian and cycle path, which will link to the existing Liffey Linear Park path via a new pedestrian/cycle link.

Part of a new 250m distributor road will be built and will connect with the existing R416 road at a new upgraded junction.

If the plans are approved, a second exit will be provided towards the southern boundary off the Athgarvan Road, and a separate dedicated access is provided for the crèche in the general location of the existing access to Kilbelin House.
