A developer is to be sought within weeks to build more than 600 homes on land owned by Dublin City Council in Santry in the north of the city. It will be the largest housing scheme undertaken by the council in decades.
The council has designated a 17-hectare site at the Santry end of Oscar Traynor Road, just to the east of the entrance to the Dublin Port Tunnel, for 640 homes, with a mix of 50 per cent private, 30 per cent social and 20 per cent affordable housing.
