141 homes planned for Ratoath

Plans for a large scale residential development to provide 141 new homes on a 13.5 acres site on the Ballybin Road in Ratoath have been submitted to Meath County Council by Marshall Yards Development Company Limited.

The site on 5.48 hectares is located to the east of the town centre with access proposed from the R125 to the south and the Ballybin Road to the east.

This scheme also proposes the realignment of the Ballybin Road and the creation of a new signalised junction with the R125.

The proposed development consists of the demolition of two houses and an agricultural shed and the construction of 141 residential dwellings with a gross floor area of 12,428 square metres in buildings of two and three storeys.

The homes include 117 houses made up of 57 two-bed, 52 three-bed, seven four-bed and one five-bed, as well as 24 duplex units made up of 18 one-bed units and six three-beds units.

Also included in the proposal are 228 car parking spaces; cycle parking spaces; communal amenity space and private amenity space (as rear gardens and terraces/balconies facing multiple directions); demolition of the wall at the north-west corner of the site interfacing with Fox Lodge Manor and the amalgamation of existing public open space in the estate and proposed public open space.

Submissions can be made up to 4th August and a decision is due on the application on 25th August.
