Major schemes planned for Portmarnock and Balbriggan:

In Portmarnock Shannon Homes is looking for planning permission from Fingal County Council to build 208 houses at Drumnigh Road on a 25-acre site.

The development would include 183 three-bed semi-detached houses and 12 two-bed terraced houses. Shannon Homes is proposing that three of the houses are used as child-minding facilities.

Also in Fingal County Council's jurisdiction, Millbank Developments has applied for planning permission to build a mixed-use urban development on a site of 2.2 acres beside Mill Walk in Balbriggan, Co Dublin.

The proposed development is 26,778sq m (288,236sq ft) with a building ranging from three to 10 storeys with 41 retail units arranged around an internal mall on a lower and upper ground floor level with a conical roof over an atrium.

There would also be offices and a medical centre spread over three floors and 49 residential units. The realignment and upgrading of the River Bracken and the provision of a new riverside walkway are also part of the proposal.
