Appeal to An Bord Pleanála

Conditional planning approval for a 33,000 square metre industrial warehouse in Tullow has been appealed to An Bord Pleanála by a "third party". 

Edward Nolan on behalf of Carlow Warehousing Ltd made the planning application and Carlow County Council last year granted conditional approval for the development at Tullowbeg, Tullow. 

The expansion has the potential to bring 100 new full time jobs to Tullow and the site comprises the existing warehouse site of 2.09 hectares extended into adjoining lands of 6.52 hectares.

Carlow County Council's website indicates that the planning permission granted by the local authority has now been appealed by a "third party". 

The case is to be decided by May 7 of this year. 

The development would include the construction of a metal clad industrial warehouse unit with a ground floor area of 32,954m2 and a 135m2 single storey plantroom annex.

It would be accessed through the existing entrance and estate roadway extending from the public roadway R725 and also via a proposed new emergency exit onto the L1024 public roadway to Rathoe.

The development would be connected to the existing public watermain within the applicant's existing site and will include access roadway around the proposed warehouse, loading bay and dock levelers, canopy structures over loading areas, palisade fencing and landscaped soil berms along the site perimeter, concrete and asphalt surfacing, and all associated siteworks.
