Craddockstown residential, located south of Naas is a scheme of 74 homes which were provided by the Comhar Consortium through a public private partnership model.  The PPP scheme, the first of its kind for social housing in Ireland, formed part of a wider Social Housing Bundle of some 534 homes across five Local Authorities based in Dublin, Louth, Kildare and Wicklow.

Through design development and consultation with the Local Authority a successful landscape scheme has been delivered.  The scheme offers a residential development with considered amenities for an emerging community. A central open space is positioned within the core of the scheme which includes feature retained trees offering a sense of maturity from the outset, whilst new tree planting of varying species offer longevity for the future. The green space features a formal kickabout space, a walking/running track, a basketball shoot-out court all of which are connected by linking walkways.  The open space includes grass mounding, specimen trees and ornamental planting, all of which ‘soften’ and enhance the amenity features.
