Residents in Glencree Newport are left angry and frustrated due to unfinished Estate.

Glencree housing estate was originally built in 2003 where the majority of properties were sold off-plan. Such plans portrayed an idyllic setting displaying manicured green spaces, driveways, roads and street lighting. Plans to include 18 townhouses and a state of the art crèche at the entrance to the estate have never materialised. For those residents who have purchased homes, their reality is an entirely different picture. A number of residents have young families and said that it is fast becoming a nightmare scenario.  To date there has been no satisfactory action taken by Singland Homes Ltd., to finish the Glencree Estate.

Residents are appealing to Eoghan Murphy, T.D. Minister for Housing, Planning, Community and Local Government to take action as the appalling, unfinished condition of the housing estate is putting lives at risk and hampering the social development of the local community.

One resident described it as an absolute eyesore and is affecting normal daily living for young families. Another described the metal fencing surrounding the housing estate as unsightly and unacceptable. Residents are infuriated by the dilapidated Porto cabins, unused building materials and an out-building which remain inside the fencing. Many expressed concern that the footpath surfaces to the main Newport to Thurles road are unfinished and hazardous, forcing people off the paths onto the main road, particularly during heavy rainfall.

Residents explained that traffic coming from the Thurles direction is immediately met with what now looks like a run-down estate and are outraged by the fact that their homes are becoming inequitable and say this is having a serious effect on their lives.

Residents have been let-down by local T.D.s and Counsellors and feel strongly that Tipperary County Council and politicians have failed them. Residents are seeking support from local business owners and the local community as the unfinished entrance devalues the locality of Newport and not just the estate of Glencree.  

Residents are now appealing to Minister Eoghan Murphy, to take swift action. They are demanding that their quality of life is restored and say that this is not what they bought into and is not what they envisaged for their family lives in Glencree 14 years later.  

It has also come to our attention that the developer is planning on building in Limerick in the near future after leaving us in an unfinished estate!!! Please sign and share our petition and help give us a voice.
