Construction is to begin very shortly on a new housing development in Patrickswell in County Limerick. Sixteen homes varying in size from one to two storeys and from two-bedrooms and upwards are being built on a council-owned site at Lisheen Park in the village.
The construction is being carried out by MEIC and is due to take approximately 10 months to complete.
In addition to the new homes there will be a new site access road from Lisheen Park, additional car parking spaces and an improvement to existing footpaths.
New street lighting will be installed, while soft landscaping including planting of shrubs and trees in the area is part of the development, which is located beside the existing Laurel Park estate.
Lisheen Park is one of a series of Part 8 housing applications which were granted by Limerick City and County Council in recent months.
Others which are at various stages of design are Lower Carey’s Road, Kileely Road, Clonmacken and Castleconnell.
The developments are part of the council’s plans for additional housing in Limerick as part of its commitment to the government’s overall Rebuilding Ireland project.
