The cost of this LIHAF project will be €14.15 million with €10.61 million (75%) being funded by the Department of Housing, Planning and Local Government with match-funding of €3.54 million (25%) from Fingal County Council. MEIC Ltd has been appointed as contractors.
The Donabate Distributor Road is part of the Donabate Local Area Plan 2016-2022 which is designed to deliver social and physical infrastructure to the area in order to create sustainable communities. As well as a phased delivery of a wide range of house types and sizes there are also plans for the development of commercial and recreational facilities including the Donabate Recreation Hub, the Broadmeadow Greenway and the Corballis Nature Park.
The Distributor Road will lead to the provision of 1,200 units by 2021 with an anticipated potential build of 2,200 units being provided in the long-term. That figure includes the construction of approximately 1,000 mixed tenure housing units on Council-owned land.
