Local Infrastructure Housing Activation Fund (LIHAF)

The Department of Housing, Planning, Community and Local Government have published a list of projects which the department has selected for allocation of funding. The Maynooth Eastern Relief Road is listed as an approved LIHAF funded project with an estimated fund of €14,500,000 set for the provision of this road. It is proposed that this road will give access to the entire Railpark landholding for the provision of an estimated 800 residential units across the various holdings.

The LIHAF allocation has been specifically designated for the provision of the Maynooth Eastern Relief Road. The map below outlines the initial route options which Kildare County Council has prepared to present for public consultation. Each of the proposed options will unlock the development potential of the entire Railpark development cluster and will more specifically service the subject lands.

Landowners benefiting from the fund must contribute towards the fund by means of a combination of provision of affordable housing, housing to an Approved Housing Agency, housing to a housing charity or a cash payment in the event that other provisions cannot be satisfied.
