Growing concerns over housing plans

Dublin City Council is to advertise for expressions of interest in the construction of  almost 1,500 houses at five council-owned sites - including the potential for 400 homes in Cherry Orchard and 30 elderly units at Corna Mona Court in Ballyfermot.

The homes are to be a mix of social housing and private housing for rent.The 8.2 hectare Cherry Orchard site is situated on vacant land behind Cherry Orchard Hospital, which the council purchased off the HSE.

A report of the council owned lands at Monday's monthly council meeting, featured fierce opposition by members to proposed amendments to the plans by Sinn Féin and People Before Profit.
