GLANBIA Plc has applied for permission for a new car park at Ballitore totalling 2150 m2. The new facility is to cater for the existing staff and visitor vehicles.
The existing temporary canteen will be relocated to a new position adjacent to the new car park. A 4m high berm will be constructed to the boundary between the proposed car park and the adjacent dwelling houses along the road, to minimise the effect of the proposed development on neighbouring property. A new site access road will be constructed around the perimeter of the site to allow access to the new car park, milk processing plant and the existing agri business store. Submissions can be made by March 12. A decision is due by April 1.
