More than 42 people will be expected to share a kitchen if plans to build a new co-living apartment building in Dun Laoghaire is approved.
The development of 208 shared living homes was criticized by local representatives at a meeting last night.
Green Party councillors have called for a rewriting of residential guidelines following the developers proposals to develop a five storey, co-living building on Eblana Avenue.
Each en-suite bedroom will include a pull down bed and kitchenette.
The co-living scheme will provide occupants with their own bathroom, but they will have to share a communal kitchen and living area.
One room is expected to rent for 1,300 euro per month.
A decision is expected to be made in July.
