A multi-million euro development could see over 80 housing units, a swimming pool, a digital hub and a large number of retail and office spaces being built outside Donegal Town.
Plans were lodged to Donegal County Council this week by Carnvalley Holdings Ltd, who are proposing a major construction project across 7.1 acre site at The Mullans and Doonan.
Included in the plans are a leisure centre, a children’s museum/play zone and a transportation hub. A new landmark community building is proposed to incorporate a digital hub and innovation centre.
The development would also add a large number of new homes for Donegal Town. Seventy-seven houses are proposed on the site, as well as 11 apartments which would be included in a mixed-used retail and residential building.
Two three-storey office buildings are enclosed in the plans, with two more two-story buildings set to provide a mix of office and retail spaces. Two large bulky goods buildings on the site would be divided into five units, according to the application.
The site is also set to have a large open public space with various amenities.
The planning application is currently at the pre-validation stage with Donegal County Council’s Planning Department. The planning office has yet to accept the proposal as a valid application. This process may take up to two weeks or more, considering the size of the development.
Carnvalley Holdings Ltd is a Donegal-based company directed by Tommy and Norah Gallagher. William Donoghue & Associates of Mount Charles is the architect firm which has designed plans for The Mullans and Doonan development.
