A new planning application for the construction of 22 homes in Carlow has been lodged with the local authority despite a previous refusal for the project.

The new application by Mr Byrne also looks to construct 22 dwellings in three separate blocks.

Blocks A and C would each consist of five units comprising of 4 two-storey three-bed townhouses and 1 two-storey four-bed townhouse.

Block B was to consist of 12 units in a three-storey block comprising of 6 three-bed duplex apartments over 6 two-bed apartments.

A Natura Impact Statement (NIS) will be submitted to the Planning Authority with this application.

It also includes the provision of a new vehicular access, install sewerage pumping station, site services provision and connections, drainage, access points, open space landscaping, car parking, bin enclosures, boundary treatment works, and all associated and ancillary development works.

A decision is due by February 5 of next year.
