The number of planning applications being received by Longford County Council for small housing projects across the county is continuing to hold firm

Longford Co Council has received a planning application from John Creegan for the proposed construction of four semi detached houses at Higginstown Wood in Granard.

The proposed development is to connect to the existing foul sewer, surface water and water mains services and all ancillary site works there.

Meanwhile, Tommy Doyle has applied to the local authority to construct five dwelling houses to consist of one two storey detached homes with detached garage; two storey and a half detached type dwelling houses with detached garages and two detached dormer bungalows with garages at Cornadowagh, Newtowncashel, Co Longford.
