Work Progressing On Kilcarbery Development
Work is continuing at the Council’s joint venture development of 1,034 homes at Kilcarbery in Clondalkin, Dublin 22. Approximately 250 homes are currently under construction on-site with the first social homes due for completion in the second quarter of 2022. 74 cost rental homes are also due for completion in the middle of the year along with 16 affordable or discounted homes.
The 600 private homes include a comprehensive range of 3 and 4-bed houses as well as one, two and three-bed apartments. The development also includes a community building which will be handed over to South Dublin County Council. A crèche and retail unit will also be included as part of the development.
The Kilcarbery development is just one site where the Council is working to deliver affordable homes in South Dublin County. The Council has put plans in the pipeline to deliver 620 new homes at Killinarden in Tallaght. The integrated mixed tenure five-year development is heavily weighted towards the provision of affordable purchase homes with 60% of the development is projected to sell for an average of €250,000 or less per home, with 20% to be delivered as social housing.
During a visit to the site in 2021, Minister Darragh O’Brien commended the Council on the development and said,
“This mixed tenure development which will provide 310 social homes, reflects the Government’s commitment to providing homes for families in their area of choice further empowering people to stay in their communities and safeguard the quality of life for all who live within them. Schemes such as this one here in Kilcarbery are exactly what we want to see replicated across the country, delivering a mix of homes, built to a very high standard, at affordable prices.
I would like to commend South Dublin County Council on bringing these projects to fruition. They are also continuing in their plans to develop more affordable housing across South County Dublin with the support of my Department.”
