Compact Growth

An own-door housing solution

This study has been prepared by Glenveagh Homes to examine how other ‘best practice’ development standards compare to the Irish development standards with regard to sustainable compact growth.

Our Strategy:

Applying a Qualitative rather than Quantitative Approach:

  • The strategy is focused on qualitative measures to create developments (that engender a positive sense of place and that will cater for the full demographic) that people of all demographics want to live and engendering a positive sense of place and community.

Increasing Affordability

  • This is central to resolving the housing shortage. The study undertaken seeks to maximise an affordable product, which is desirable to the consumer.

Optimising Land Efficiency:

  • Achieve compact growth by providing sustainable own-door housing at appropriate densities.
