Council Committed To Major Housing Project Going Ahead In Tipp Town


The progress of a major new development in Tipperary town looks more secure following a meeting between the developer, council officials and two local councillors.

The project at Garranacanty had been cast into doubt last week when Cllr John Crosse asked the council to consider giving a 50% reduction in the development bond to be paid in advance by the developer.

A meeting took place yesterday between the developer Pramukh Gogineni, council planning officials and Cllr John Cross and Cllr Michael Fitzgerald both members of the Tipp Cahir Cashel MD.

The councillors are very supportive of the project which proposes to build 96 A rated houses, a nursing home and a facility with 28 apartments for senior citizens. 

Cllr Michael Fitzgerald says there was a good discussion of all issues at the meeting yesterday and that the Council have committed to ensure that this project goes ahead.

Cllr Fitzgerald has offered his full support and assistance to the project. The developer says it is an evolving situation but is hopeful that the entire project goes ahead as planned.
