Permission refused for 142 unit Duleek development

Last week An Bord Pleanála refused planning permission for a proposed strategic housing development in Duleek on the basis that the application contravened the zoning for the land. This follows from our successful High Court case taken with Highlands Residents Association that land zoned residential but included as part of strategic reserves could not be granted permission by An Bord Pleanála.

In fact the parcel of land on the outskirts of Duleek is earmarked for dezoning in the draft development plan and is slated to be placed outside the town boundary going forward.
