A new creche is also part of the development.
A decision is due this week on plans for nearly 100 new homes in a midlands village.
JC Brenco Developments is seeking permission for the construction of 99 new residential units in Rahin, Ballylinan in Laois.
The majority of those will be three-bed, two-storey buildings, but the plans also include the provision of some two-bed, single-storey and two-storey units.
The development of a new creche is also being proposed.
A decision from Laois County Council is due to be made this Thursday.
