There were 73 homes already built and occupied in Ros Mor before Jana Developments Ltd took over the remainder of the site in late 2015 and since then a further 38 homes have been built and are now occupied.
The next phase of 56 homes and crèche began in April 2018 and Jana Developments have also committed to developing the large open space and children’s playground, to be completed in 2018.
These high quality block built homes are very well insulated and very economical to heat and run, with an enhanced feature being PV panels on the roof, to save electricity costs.
Fronting the Ballyneety Road, at the entrance to the site there is a commercial area, zoned for a Neighbourhood Centre and the aim is to develop a retail centre there with a convenience store, additional shops and possibly offices/medical centre, but this is likely to be in the latter stages of the scheme.
Planning permission has been granted for a crèche as part of the 2018 phase and construction of this facility is expected to commence in 2019.
The building contractor on site is Hallinan Construction Ltd, a local family run building firm from Askeaton, Co. Limerick, that have been building homes in the Limerick area for over 30years. Headed up by Bernie Hallinan with his son Shane, they are on site all the time with a friendly “hands-on” approach, ready to meet purchasers on any issues or small alterations that might be required.
