Appeal Lodged Against Planned Work At Galway's Glenlo Abbey Hotel
Concerns over private property and protected structures have been lodged as part of an appeal to An Bord Pleanala over the redevelopment work at Glenlo Abbey Hotel, located just outside Galway city.
In July, as reported by galwaybay.ie, county planners gave the go-ahead for major changes at the Glenlo Abbey. The project by Baswal Ltd would see a single-storey extension of the existing golf clubhouse, while also involving the demolition of part of the link between the existing bedroom block and Pavillion building.
The planned redevelopment also include the construction of a new three-storey extension containing 17 additional bedrooms, a laundry and a prep kitchen.
It's now being reported by galwaybay.ie that the grant of permission has been appealed by local residents, 'who feel that their property is regularly trespassed upon by users of the golf driving range', while in another appeal by Prior Park Assets Ireland Ltd, it's claimed that a condition should be included to ensure protected structures on site are adequately protected.
