Council defends Castletown plan

Kildare County Council has defended its decision to grant planning permission for a housing estate on protected lands opposite Castletown House in Celbridge.

Senior executive planner Aoife Brangan told a Bord Pleanála hearing that the council stood over its decision to approve the construction of 84 houses.

The developers, Devondale Ltd, are asking An Bord Pleanála to grant permission for 101 houses on the site, which is on the opposite side of the river to the early 18th-century stately home. Several appellants said the proposal conflicts with the county development plan.
