A decision on the redevelopment of the O'Devaney Gardens site off the North Circular Road has been postponed.

The local authority had been due to vote on the proposals at a council meeting last night that would see a developer build more than 800 homes. The plan would see half the units become social and affordable homes while the rest would be sold off privately.

Some councillors said they had an issue with the suggested price of the new housing units, while others wanted the land kept in public ownership.

Built in the 50s, the site of the old flat complex has long been earmarked for redevelopment.

Local Labour Councillor for the area Alison Gilliland said the Housing Minister Eoghan Murphy offered to meet City Councillors to discuss alternatives to the current proposals.

"The Minister has been in contact with us and saught a meeting with us to discuss our difficulties with the proposal"

She went on to say that "they have agreed to defer the proposal, the vote on it, for a month until we meet with the Minister and see if he can address our concerns".
