An appeal has been lodged against the development of 21 houses in Ballyjamesduff.
At the end of January, Cavan County Council granted conditional permission for the construction of the homes as part of an extension to the Elm Drive housing estate.
The original application was objected to by the Elm Drive Residents Association and the same group has now appealed the case to An Bord Pleanala.
In the initial objection, the residents association said that they were sold the development 16 years ago on the assurance of it only comprising of 12 homes, and that it would be a "safe estate" for elderly and young people with no through traffic.
They said there are ongoing concerns in relation to the upkeep of the estate.
The objection was made up of seven points, including the trebling of traffic, that the existing road is too narrow for emergency services and that the basis of the objections were on health and safety grounds.
It was clarified that the residents group isn't against the building of the houses, but the inclusion of the road in their "quaint" estate.
The planning authority is to make a decision on the case in June.
