Residential Development Site in Gorey for Sale

Bannon have been instructed to dispose of a high profile residential development site in Gorey, Co. Wexford. The site has frontage to both the Carnew Road and Gorey Hill Road and is a greenfield development site extending to 8.65 acres. The site is zoned for residential development under the Gorey Town and Environs Local Area Plan 2010.

The 8.65 acre development site adjoins two local schools, Gaelscoil Mhoshiolog and Gorey Educate Together National School. Minor site clearance works were carried out on part of the site. Footpaths and cycle lanes have been constructed along the Carnew Road and Gorey Hill Road which allows pedestrian access to the town, which lies 1 kilometre from the subject property.

According to Leanne Kane of Bannon who is handling the sale, “This site is very well located adjacent to two local schools and only one kilometre to Gorey Town Centre. With Dublin located an hour away, the site offers a potential purchaser an opportunity to provide residential units in Gorey town which are ideal for commuters and locals alike. Wexford County Council previously granted permission for 50 units on part of the site. The Housing Agency recently assessed the town and reported that an additional 365 residential units will be required here by 2018. We therefore expect house builders will seek to provide at least some of this demand, by buying this site”.
