Wednesday, 6th September, 2017 6:07pm

Cork’s landscape continues to change as more developments are given the go-ahead, while others could be in the pipeline if planning permission is granted.

The latest developments given the green light by Cork City Council includes a new housing estate on the former Nemo Rangers GAA grounds on South Douglas Road.

Dildar Ltd is to build 204 units consisting of 50 two and three-storey detached, semi-detached and terraced houses.

The development will also include 153 one, two and three-bedroom apartments in five and six-storey blocks over two levels of basement car parking.

A three-storey mixed use building will also be built which is planned to include a crèche and a commercial unit for use as a private gym.

Permission was also granted for 370 car parking spaces as well as a new vehicle and pedestrian entrance onto Douglas Road and new pedestrian access from Glenview Terrace South Douglas Road.

Meanwhile, Cork County Council has given Legendstand Limited the go-ahead to build 24 houses at Brigown in Mitchelstown.

Carrigtwohill is set for another housing development with the County Council granting permission for 19 houses on Station Road. Bluescape Ltd has been given permission to build seven two-bedroom townhouses, 10 three-bedroom townhouses and two three-bedroom semi-detached houses.

Kealkil Childcare and Preschool in Bantry is also on course to change the use of the first floor from storage to childcare use. It’s also been granted planning permission to build a two-storey extension.

Back in the city, meanwhile, the view from the Christy Ring Bridge is set to change as the curtain closes on a 30 year deal between Cork Opera House and Toyota.

The car manufacturer’s branding is set to come down and while there no news yet of what new signage will be erected, the Opera House has sought planning permission for new signage.

This has been lodged into Cork City Council.

Also, looking for permission from the City Council is Paul Cashell on Winthrop Street.

He wants permission for change of use to the ground floor from retail to retail with sales of coffee and food for consumption on and off premises.

This will also include alterations to interior signage, lighting and external extendable canopy.

Just around the corner on Oliver Plunkett Street, Michael Guineys Ltd is looking for permission for the material alteration, refurbishment and alterations to the existing front elevation and entrance porch and fascia, with new signage and demountable gates and all associated site works.

Permission is also being sought to build nine two-storey detached house in Beennamweel West in Bweeg.

Also looking for the green light on a new project is Cahalane Brothers Ltd. They has sought permission to build 20 houses in Dunmanway.
