DescriptionThe subject lands are located at Coolcots, adjacent to Wexford Racecourse and within walking distance of all town centre amenities. Wexford is a thriving provincial town with a population of 20,000 people, as per the 2016 Census. The site benefits from excellent accessibility being strategically positioned close to the N25/N11 Dublin Road and only 10 minutes driving distance from the M11 Motorway Connection at Oilgate. Wexford is a most attractive town with a travel time of approximately 1 hour & 30 minutes from Dublin.
The land comprises a greenfield site extending to c. 6.3 hectares / 15.57 acres. It has the benefit of Full Planning Permission for 155 houses. The site is regular in shape with a level topography and benefits from extensive frontage onto the public road. The planning permission is laid out in two phases with a grant of permission for 70 residential units in Phase I and a further 87 residential units in Phase II. We understand all services are adjacent. This grant of planning equates to 10 residential units per acre, which in the current planning environment comprises a low-density development. Perhaps this is one of the last ‘ready to go’ development sites in this locality with a low-density planning permission – certainly an attractive proposition for builders and developers.
The surrounding areas are primarily residential in nature and the site is within easy walking distance of Scoil Mhuire Primary School, Wexford General Hospital, Wexford Racecourse, Wexford County Council Offices, The Department of Environment Offices, etc. Coolcots is close to Wexford Town Centre which boasts a thriving retail centre with a unique combination of national, multi-national and indigenous retailers. With the recent improvements in the Roads Network and the new M11 Motorway Connection, it brings this area of the South-East even more accessible to Dublin.
Rosslare Harbour is nearby and is destined to become a major employment centre as the commercial usage of the Port increases exponentially, due to Brexit and general congestion at Dublin Port.
Please note there is a private website/data room set up with all the information pertaining to this property. Please make contact with us directly and we will arrange access.
Wexford is a most attractive place to live, work and raise a family. There is an extensive range of amenities and given its coastal location there are a host of ‘Blue-Flag’ sandy beaches nearby. Davy has projected Irish economic growth for 10% in 2021 and is expecting housing inflation will jump to 8% or more nationally from 2.2% last year. In August 2021 the Irish Times reported “a clear rapid bounce-back has taken place in the third quarter as Ireland’s successful Covid-19 Vaccination Programme has allowed business restrictions to be lifted, with further easing to come in the second half of the year”.
