An appeal has been lodged against plans to build eight new homes in Ballyhaise.
In January, Cavan County Council granted conditional permission for the development.
The plans consist of demolishing a bungalow at Townparks in Ballyhaise and constructing eight housing units in its place.
It was intended that there be four two-storey two bedroom town houses, two two storey three bedroom townhouses and two one-bed apartments.
The local authority approved the permission at the start of the year, with 20 conditions.
An appeal was submitted to An Bord Pleanála by local residents following a submission on the original application.
In the submission, it said the number of houses is "far too many" in a small area, that it would be "overbearing", "create a serious privacy issue" with neighbouring houses and affect light getting in.
There were also concerns over sewage and surface water at the site, that the architecture isn't in keeping with that of the village, there isn't adequate parking and the development isn't considering passing traffic on nearby local roads.
The planning authority will make a decision on the case by the end of June.
