50 houses will be built on Golf Course Road in Westport by 2022.
That's according to the Cathaoirleach of the West Mayo Municipal District Christy Hyland.
The Independent Councillor confirmed to Midwest News that the project is going to part eight planning in the coming weeks.
There had been concerns over possible traffic congestion the development could cause, but the construction of the N5 dual carriageway has helped address these concerns.
Councillor Hyland told Midwest News that the housing development will go towards alleviating housing lists in Westport.
