Almost 400 homes have been given the green light for Dublin's newest town.
The social, affordable and cost rental units will be the first phase of housing in Clonburris.
Construction is expected to begin early next year on the two developments at the new Clonburris Strategic Development Zone, which sits between Lucan, Clondalkin and Liffey Valley.
The Grand Canal Extension and Kishogue schemes, which include 382 social, affordable purchase and cost rental homes, will be the first homes developed on council-owned land at the new Dublin suburb according to the Irish Times.
It comes after the government approved €186 million in funding for infrastructure for the new town that has the capacity to deliver almost 9,000 new homes for up to 23,000 people. That's a population equivalent to Naas and Kilkenny city.
Last year, Cairn Homes lodged plans for 569 homes in the new suburb.
