Construction News Image
Over 600 new homes made up of social, affordable and private properties have been approved in Tallaght.

The proposal at Killinarden was green lit by members of South Dublin County Council, with development set to begin subject to full planning permission.

Approximately 60% of this 620-home development will sell for an average of €250,000 or less per home, while a further 20% will be delivered as social housing.

South Dublin County Council will enter into a development agreement with the Arden Team DAC to deliver the homes. The Arden design team, comprising Sisk Living and Kelland Homes and Ó Cualann Cohousing Alliance, will deliver 'The Foothills, Killinarden' development over several phases, with 278 homes estimated to be completed by 2024, 217 homes in 2025 and the final 125 homes in 2026. A community/sports facility, creche, new public open space, and wetlands infrastructure, as well as essential community amenities, will be provided to create a new sustainable neighbourhood.

The demand for affordable purchase homes in the Killinarden area was highlighted through South Dublin County Council's Affordable Homes Portal. Launched in 2019 following the allocation of €18 million to the Council by the Department of Housing, Local Government and Heritage through the government's Serviced Sites Fund. 2,700 people expressed an interest through the portal in purchasing an affordable home in Killinarden.

Councillor Peter Kavanagh, Mayor of South Dublin County, said: "This mixed tenure development which will provide 620 new homes, reflects the Council's commitment to providing homes for families and building new communities. I am particularly happy to see such an emphasis on providing affordable and social homes in this development and I look forward to the ground being broken on site."

Daniel McLoughlin, Chief Executive of South Dublin County Council, added: "The delivery of affordable housing is a significant element of the Killinarden development and our housing strategy. Addressing issues of housing affordability that exist for low-to-middle income households is a key element of South Dublin County Council's efforts to tackle the housing crisis. This initiative is a crucial element of our plans to deliver over 4500 social and affordable homes over five years."
