An Bord Pleanála made the decision to grant permission for Phase 2 of the OLG development. No substantial conditions were included as part of the grant of permission. It’s a shocking and disappointing result, not only for the residents most affected, but also for the Councillors, T.D., and Council Executive who recommended that permission be refused. The Council view the development as being in breach of the County Development Plan. The issue is in relation to the “Inst” designation on the zoning. However An Bord Pleanála clearly do not agree.
We would like to thank all our elected representatives who supported the residents in trying to stop, or modify, this development. Particular thanks goes to Cllr. Jim O’Leary, Cllr. Anne Colgan, Cllr. Barry Saul, Cllr. Sean O’Loughlin, and Catherine Martin T.D. for all your efforts on our behalf.
