Cairn Homes plc welcomes the Government’s decision today to approve a multi-annual grant-funding package of €186.3m of infrastructure investment for the Clonburris Strategic Development Zone (SDZ).
Located on the soon to be electrified Dublin-Kildare railway line and the Grand Canal, Clonburris is a planned new town in the Dublin suburbs just 12km from both the city centre and Dublin airport, and a 5 minute drive from the M50. When complete, Clonburris will deliver more than 9,000 new homes for up to 23,000 new residents, including a substantial number of social and affordable new homes. Clonburris lands span 280 hectares (690 acres), and are located between Lucan, Clondalkin and Liffey Valley.
Clonburris represents a once in a generation opportunity that is set to create a vibrant and sustainable community with top-class amenities in a well-designed and planned environment. As lead developer, Cairn will be delivering a total of c.5,000 of the 9,000 new homes, as well as commercial and retail space within a dedicated Urban Core, local parks and a linear park along the canal.
Cairn has submitted a planning application for the first phase of construction for 569 family homes, incorporating 173 houses, 148 duplex homes and 248 apartments, a creche, two local parks and children’s play areas, together with a green link alongside Fonthill Road.
