LSG Property Developments Limited sought to demolish a disused funeral home at Cahereen West, Killarney Road and build the development including eight apartments, 59 houses, 134 car parking spaces and a pedestrian walk along the bank of the River Maine.

Concerns raised by the public included the scale of the development, impact on residential amenities, traffic safety and anti-social behaviour.

Planners felt residential amenities wouldn't be impacted and anti-social behaviour wouldn't be generated; they granted permission for the development, subject to 21 conditions.
