Flooding concerns have been highlighted as one of the core reasons for the refusal of permission of a significant housing development in Roscommon.

Ron Weisz had applied for the construction of 30 homes at Mullaghmore Townland, Cortober, Carrick on Shannon.

The development included 16 three bed semi detached units, 10 four bed houses and 4 three bed detached homes. Also included in the plans were public open spaces, parking, landscaping and boundary treatments at the site on the Roscommon side of Carrick on Shannon. The application was the subject of a number of submissions from members of the public, highlighting their concerns over the project. These issues included worries over flooding, increased traffic on local roads and poor access to local water and waste connections.

In considering the application, Roscommon County Council denied permission under four main headings such as risk of flooding, haphazard development and land access concerns.
