With new homes construction making a tentative return to the market a number of new schemes have been unveiled in recent weeks, and the supply looks set to continue. In fact, some of the biggest new home developers of the property boom are seeking planning permission for developments in north Dublin.

Parsis, a partnership between Michael Cotter’s Park Developments and builders John Sisk & Sons, has been requested by planners to submit revised plans and additional information in respect of its proposed development on the former grounds of Santa Sabina school at Greenfield Road, Sutton.

The developers acquired the 3.83 acre site in December 2005 and a decade later the site remains undeveloped. Initially permission was sought in 2006 for the construction of 130 properties on the site, however the latest application is less ambitious. In total, 71 apartments and 10 semi-detached houses are planned. The apartments will be spread over four apartment blocks with 121 car parking spaces at basement level. Fingal County Council has suggested that the height of the proposed semi-detached houses are too high and requested revised plans. O’Mahony Pike Architects, who have designed most of Park Development’s most successful schemes, such as Mount Saint Anne’s in Milltown, is responsible for designing the Santa Sabina development.

Meanwhile, Cotter’s latest development on Carpenterstown Road, supported by Nama, launches this weekend. Already 30 of 44 three- and four-bed houses are understood to have been sold following an early preview last weekend.

In Swords, Gerry Gannon’s Gannon Properties has applied for planning permission for the latest phase of its Millers Glen scheme in Swords, requesting permission to construct 246 homes on an 18-acre site.

The first phase of the popular northside scheme made headlines when buyers camped out in advance of its launch, a practice not seen since the height of the property boom. That phase comprised two- to four-bedroom houses, while the latest phase consists of both apartments and houses. In total, 112 one- to four-bedroom apartments are planned along with 134 three- and four-bedroom houses. Construction is still in progress for the first phase, which is likely to be completed by October.
