Planning permission granted for 266 homes at St Kevin’s Hospital in Cork

The Land Development Agency has been granted planning permission by An Bord Pleanála to build 266 homes, an Enterprise office and crèche facilities at the St Kevin’s Hospital site in Cork.

The red-brick Victorian hospital, which became derelict in 2002, was destroyed in a fire four years ago.

The houses which will be built on the site will consist of townhouses and duplex apartments which will include up to four bedrooms. An Bord Pleanála granted planning permission on the basis of 36 conditions.

These conditions include that the former hospital is renovated to provide 60 apartments, an Enterprise officer in the former chapel building and a crèche on the ground floor.

Further conditions include that there is an overall Construction Management Plan for the site, the continued use of an archaeologist on the site, and provision of plans governing waste management, lighting, work hours and parking while construction is underway.
