Excellent opportunity to acquire a prime site ideal for development (SPP) close to Sligo town centre. This parcel of land comprises an impressive circa 6.75 acres & strong demand is expected. This is the most impressive parcel of land to come to the market in Sligo in recent years.

This property is the most prime residential zoned development site to come on the market in recent times. Located just off the Strandhill Road within walking distance of Sligo town centre this area continues to be very sought after and commands the strongest residential sale prices within Sligo town. All the benefits of the amenities of Sligo town are on its doorstep and there are both secondary and national schools within a short walk of the site.

This prime parcel of residentially zoned development land is sure to attract much attention.

The lands had services installed onsite with roads and sewers etc. for development circa 10 years ago. These were installed by the previous developer who had, we understand, Planning Permission at that time for an apartment and housing development onsite. We understand that the previous Planning Permission allowed for the development of 21 detached family homes together with a crèche facility and it also included two separate apartment buildings with a total of 86 apartments between the two blocks.

Roads and services we understand are fully in place for this potential scheme however it will require a fresh Planning Application as we understand the current planning for this development has now lapsed.

Under the Sligo & Environs Development Plan these lands are zoned for R3-Medium/High-Density Residential Development.

The objective of this zoning is to “promote the development of housing within a gross density range varying between 35 to 50 plus dwellings per hectare which equates to 18 plus dwellings per acre. R3 zones are of particular importance, being generally located close to the city centre, employment sources, transport corridors and neighbourhood centres. Innovative layout and design will be required in R3 zones, with high quality landscaping and pedestrian/cycle connections with the surrounding areas”
