The objection was lodged earlier this year with An Bord Pleanala.

Planning permission for the retention and further development of 13 homes in Drumshanbo has been upheld by the higher planning authority.

The site comprises the unfinished element of a larger housing development for 29 residential units.

The permission granted by Leitrim County Council in May was appealed to An Bord Pleanála by locals in the existing estate.

According to the inspector's report, the site is currently occupied by the overgrown foundations of the 13 houses and enclosed by a timber rail fence.

The application lodged by Tommy Mulvey calls for the retention of planning permission and the completion of the works begun on the 13 homes.

Access to the development is provided via the existing Allenbrook Estate, with residents stating the plans will impact on road safety, privacy and wastewater capacity according to submission to the county.

The appeal lodged by Lynda and Robert Curr and Kelly Hamilton was denied by the higher planning authority this week.

The permission has been upheld with 18 conditions including the development's access onto Hilly Road will be pedestrian only.
