Planning permission sought to build 92 residential units at Bessborough
Developers have sought planning permission to build 92 residential units on lands at Bessborough.
The development by MWB Two Ltd will include 43 one-bed units, 30 two-bed units and 18 three-bed units and will also include a creche with capacity for 25 children.
The project will result in the creation of up to 200 jobs in the construction phase, and MWB Two will invest approximately €40 million in the development, if given the go-ahead.
The Cork Survivors and Supporters Alliance, which led objections to the previous proposal at Bessborough, said no development permission should be granted until the area marked on historic maps as a childrens’ burial ground is under public ownership and managed as a public cemetery.
