Plans to build more than 850 homes on Dublin city council land has been approved by councillors.

The site on Oscar Traynor Road will be made up of 100 per cent social, affordable and cost rental homes. The contentious vote was approved 36 to 23.

It comes almost eight years after it was first proposed, and a year after city councillors rejected an earlier deal with developer Glenveagh.

853 units will be built by the developer at the site in Santry. 40 per cent will be social housing, 40 per cent cost rental and 20 per cent affordable purchase. An earlier plan would have seen half the homes sold privately.

Councillors had put forward a plan to have the land developed directly by the council but an assessment by the Department of Housing found it would be at least five years before the project would be at the ready to build stage.

Social homes

Separately, officials in Dublin city council are to get legal advice on a proposal to lease social housing from the pension fund of a British arms manufacturer.

Councillors told management at a meeting last night they were opposed to the deal, involving houses and apartments in Kimmage and Crumlin, that were bought by the fund.

The council's director of housing is to speak to the council's law agent about the options available.
