Plans to build 72 new homes in Portlaoise submitted

Plans for a major housing development in Portlaoise have been launched.

An application by Liam Conroy to build 72 houses on the Borris Road, Borris Great in Portlaoise has been submitted.

Seven of these are to be designated as social homes while the remaining 67 will include a mix two and three storey units ranging from two-to-four bedrooms.

The project also has provision for a future connector road for the surrounding area.

The local authority is expected to make a decision on the development on February 26.

While submissions can be made from the public until February 5.

The news comes just a few months after 141 new homes were approved for Portlaoise.

An Bord Pleanala has upheld a Laois County Council decision to grant permission for an extra 141 houses at Rockview Estate in Portlaoise.
