Seven new homes are planned for the Mill Road in Dundalk.

Kenneth Matthews has submitted a planning application to Louth County Council for the proposed development, located opposite the De La Salle Secondary School.

He is seeking permission to demolish existing commercial units and construct seven dwellings in their place, comprising three sets of semi-detached dwellings and one detached.

As part of the application there would also be alterations to the existing agricultural entrance for use as a main vehicular access, car parking spaces, landscaping and site development works.

As part of a separate application Mr Matthews is also planning to demolish a bungalow at nearby Castletown Cross and construct a new bungalow in its place.

A decision on the matter will be made by February 5th.
