The planning application lodged looks for the construction of a single storey supermarket

A new Lidl planning application for Bagenalstown has been marked as "on hold" on the local authority's planning website after Carlow County Council sought "further information" earlier this year. 

The German retailer submitted a new application on February 8 this year for the construction of a supermarket in the town and a decision was due by the local authority on April 4.

However, the Council on April 3 sought "further information" on the application and it has been "on hold" since. 

The planning application lodged looks for the construction of a single storey supermarket including an off-licence sales area (Gross Floor Area (GFA) of 2,268sqms; a coffee shop (GFA 210sqms); plaza and enhanced public realm and landscaping. 

The development at Royal Oak Road, Moneybeg, Bagenalstown would include a single point of vehicular access and egress, off and to the Royal Oak Road; an ESB sub-station building (GFA 23sqms) and a bin storage unit of (circa GFA 6sqms).

It would also allow for the provision of car and cycle parking and two electric vehicle charging spaces; trolley bays (GFA 38sqms); boundary treatment, hard and soft landscaping, drainage and underground services and associated site development works as required.

The development includes all signage.
