Galway Bay fm newsroom – The granting of planning permission for a major housing estate in Tuam is the first step in the right direction to tackle a ‘chronic’ shorting of housing in the town.
That’s according to local area councillor Tom McHugh, who says the green light for the development of 128 homes at Ballygaddy Road is a relief.
Arlum Limited is leading the project, which was submitted directly to An Bord Pleanala as a Strategic Housing Development, and on which work is expected to begin by year end.

He also believes that proposals to reduce the boundary of Tuam town would have a negative impact on housing potential.
