A PROPERTY developer has submitted a new planning application for the development of 245 build-to-rent apartments on Fourth Avenue in Cookstown Industrial Estate, after their previous planning application for the same site was deemed invalid last May. Steelworks Property Developments Limited lodged an application for a pre-planning consultation with An Bord Pleanála (ABP) about plans for a 336-unit residential development on Fourth Avenue through the ABP fast-track system, however ABP deemed the plans invalid. On October 18, Steelworks lodged a planning application with ABP, where they downsized their plans for 336 apartments on Fourth Avenue to 245.

A decision on the application is due from ABP by February 17 next year.
