Tipperary County Council is to build 30 new houses in Tipperary town and Cloughjordon, having received the approval of members at the March meeting of the council this morning in Nenagh.
Twenty eight of these houses are to be built at Knockanrawley, Tipperary Town ranging from four bedroom two storey homes, to two bedroom single storey homes.
And, in The Courtyard, Cloughjordon, one four bedroom home and one three bedroom home will be provided having been proposed by Cllr Ger Darcy and seconded by Cllr Michael O'Meara.
However, there were traffic concern expressed about the Knockanrawley homes with Cllr Denis Leahy opining that the increase in vehicles could pose problems.
While welcoming the building of the new homes, Cllr Leahy said that many residents felt an inner relief road would be necessary for the area. Cllr Michael Fitzgerald, however said that he wanted to see the homes built and if problems arose with traffic, they can be dealt with later.
The members were informed by officials that traffic calming measures would be introduced to manage the situation around the estate and would be adequate.
