BREAKING: 800 new homes for Kilkenny City

Housing construction to get underway.

Up to 800 new houses are to be built in Kilkenny City under a new investment programme confirmed by the Government today.

The new houses will be the realisation of longstanding ambitions to open up the city’s western environs – along the Circular Road area – for development. The council has been awaiting a decision on the funding under the Local and Housing Infrastructure Activation Fund, as part of plans to tackle Kilkenny’s housing crisis. 

In December, chief executive Colette Byrne told local councillors there was potential to provide for around 3,500 houses and two schools to the west of the city.

This latest allocation is part of a plan to deliver 23,000 housing units nationally by 2021.
