29 Social Housing Units To Be Built On Lands In Tallaght And Knocklyon


Councillors in South Dublin County Council (SDCC) recently gave the go-ahead for the building of 29 social housing units on lands in Tallaght and Knocklyon, with a total of 15 houses and 14 apartments due to be constructed. The development of 13 units in Tallaght will be located on undeveloped lands at Killinarden Heights, adjacent to Knockmore Avenue (adjoining St. Catherine’s House), Tallaght, Dublin 24. The development will consist of 8 houses and 5 apartments whilst the development of 16 units at Knocklyon will be located on a site on Old Knocklyon Road, Dublin 16. The development will consist of 7 houses and 9 apartments in two / three storey units. All units are designed to hold a Building Energy Rating (BER) energy performance of A2.

Daniel McLoughlin, Chief Executive of SDCC said “I very much welcome the decision of the Councillors in approving these proposed social housing developments. These provisions form part of the Council’s commitment to drive the building of social housing units in the County over the next few years. So far this year the Council has delivered 78 houses across two sites in Clondalkin and Tallaght, with another 272 housing units expected to be handed over to the Council by July next year. These new developments bring the stock of Council housing to almost 9,600 units”.

The approval of the social housing units at Killinarden Heights (St. Catherine’s) and Knocklyon (Homeville) are in line with Part 8 of the Local Government Planning and Development Regulations 2001 (as Amended), where Local Authorities propose the construction of houses, and follows the completion of 17 social housing units in Mayfield, Clondalkin, and 69 units in Sheehy Skeffington Meadows, Tallaght. The Council expects to deliver 11 new social housing units in St. Mark’s Clondalkin, 24 units in Killininny, Oldbawn, 28 housing units in MacUilliam, Fortunestown and another 16 units in Sheehy Skeffington Meadows, Tallaght by the end of September, 2018. Another 185 social housing units are expected to be handed over to the Council by July, 2019.
