Local property owner lodges appeal against Kilcolgan homes

Galway Bay fm newsroom – A housing development which is planned for Kilcolgan has met with opposition.

Planning permission has been granted by the county council to DNCF for the construction of 8 houses off the N67.

However that decision has been appealed to An Bord Pleanála.

In an appeal to the higher planning authority, an adjoining property owner argues that the proposed access to the site would be a potential traffic hazard.

The appeal also argues that there is no footpath link to the village which increases the risk for pedestrians.

He also raises concern about potential interference with the access to his own property.

A decision on the houses in Kilcolgan is due from An Bord Pleanála in October.
