Ned O’Shea Construction Announces Plans For 235 New Homes In Lisloose, Tralee

Ned O’Shea Construction is pleased to announce that it has lodged a planning application for a €70m, 235-home, Large Scale Residential Development (LRD) in Lisloose, Tralee, Co. Kerry.

The 9.2-hectare Lisloose site is located on Bracker O’Regan Road, with access to the recently opened Tralee-Fenit Greenway – and home to a Bronze Age ringfort – and aims to supply much-needed housing for the growing population, while also creating 200 direct construction jobs in the local community and with local suppliers. 

James O’Shea, Ned O’Shea Construction Managing Director, believes this latest proposal is well-timed. He said: “We have been building for communities in Kerry for over 50 years, including houses, churches, hospitals and schools like Mounthawk Secondary School close to the Lisloose development. This latest project is very exciting, and we believe it is vital to help Tralee on its current growth trajectory. 

“There are a lot of promising projects in the pipeline, such as the €300m Astellas Pharma facility announcement, with new hotels and restaurants adding to our community.

“We believe this project is well-timed with more and more people struggling to afford their first home, and it will undoubtedly benefit the local community.”

The planning proposal includes a mixture of dwelling types and sizes, including 2, 3 and 4-bedroom houses, and 1 and 2-bedroom apartments, with a view to creating sustainable homes in landscaped green areas. In addition, a childcare facility and a small commercial unit are proposed as well as space for 372 car spaces, and 349 cycle spaces.

The Lisloose site is zoned for residential development and planning permission for a residential development was previously granted in 2017 with no objections to the previous residential proposals.

The site layout takes advantage of the sloping hillside to offer beautiful views over the town of Tralee, just 2km south, and it is well-located with two primary schools and a secondary school nearby.

The landscape design aims to create vibrant neighbourhoods with a well-distributed network of natural areas, and walkable and attractive open public spaces, with plans to plant over 400 trees on the site.

Extensive archaeological and ecological surveys have been carried out on the site, including badger, bat and aquatic surveys. A Ring Fort, likely to have been built during the Bronze Age, will be carefully zoned with informative signage placed on-site to honour its historical significance.

The company have stated that they will engage with the council to hand over a suitable number of units for social and affordable housing satisfying the Part 5 obligation of the planning act.

A Traffic and Transport Assessment (TTA) along with a Flood Risk Assessment has also been carried out as required for submission to Kerry County Council.
