City planners back proposal for Woodquay apartment complex

Galway Bay fm newsroom – City planners have backed a proposal to add apartments to a previously granted plan for three new apartment blocks in Woodquay in the city.

K. King Construction Limited received permission in 2018 to construct 19 housing units, in three apartment blocks at Saint Brendan’s Avenue.

The company later sought to alter the plans and add a further eight units to the development, for a total of 27 apartments across a 4 storey, 3 storey and 2 storey set of apartment blocks.

City planners have approved the amended development subject to eight conditions.

One states a detailed landscape plan is to be submitted for the development.

It’s also stipulated that units 1 to 3 of the six-storey apartment building will have direct access to the external amenity space at the rear of the building.
