Several local councillors have welcomed the news that planning has been granted  for a 249-house development on Park Road.

An Bord Pleanála has upheld planning granted by Kerry County Council last October to KPH, a Kenmare-based construction company allowing it to go ahead with the project at Cronin's Wood.
The development will include:
- 117 three bed houses
- 18 two bed houses
- 2 five bed houses
- 6 four bed houses
- 68 two bed apartments
- 38 one bed apartments
- Creche
- Play facilities
- 510 parking spaces
- 352 bicycle stands

The decision to grant permission has been enthusiastically welcomed by Mayor of Killarney, Cllr Niall Kelleher, who said it will be a major step forward in the effort to solve Killarney’s housing crisis.
“This was the best possible news to receive on a Monday morning and it is a major boost for the people of Killarney where suitable housing accommodation is very difficult to find,” he said.
Cllr Martin Grady also welcomed the news.
He said: “Killarney has a lack of rentals and options to purchase especially for young couples starting out in life. This will help retain people in Killarney, benefiting the overall community as well as trades people and shops in the area for the duration of the development.”

Cllr Maura Healy-Rae has continuously highlighted the need for further housing development particularly in the Killarney area. “I want to wish the developer well in their construction of what is a critical development for the area with a variety of housing types,” she said.
