Kilkenny County Council have granted planning permission for the demolition of a former hosiery factory in the Talbot's Inch area on the outskirts of the city to make way for the construction of new houses on the site.
A four bedroom, two-storey, detached house, a five bedroom, two-storey, detached house as well as a five bedroom, three-storey, detached house will be built on the site from the ground up.
A derelict end of terrace cottage will also be converted into a two bedroom, single-storey house.
Six roadside parking spaces in addition to on-site parking for three houses are included in the plans.
The site is within an architectural conservation area and within the curtilage of a protected structure.
The construction work will be overseen by Hansa Properties Ltd.
