An Bord Pleanála Rejects Appeal By Carlow Brewing Company Against Decision To Refuse The Company Planning Permission For New Production Facility And Visitor Centre

By Dave Simpson

An Bord Pleanála has rejected an appeal by O'Hara's craft beer producer Carlow Brewing Company against Dún Laoghaire-Rathdown County Council's decision to refuse the company planning permission to develop a new production facility and visitor centre in Dublin's Sandyford Business Park.

As reported by The Irish Times, Carlow Brewing Company, which is also known as O'Hara's Brewery, applied for planning permission for a change of use of a vacant building in Sandyford Business Park so that it could develop a new production facility and visitor centre that would include a viewing platform, a bar, a restaurant and an outdoor seating area on the site.

Reason For Refusal

However, Dún Laoghaire-Rathdown County Council decided not to approve Carlow Brewing Company's planning permission application on the grounds that the site in question is zoned for open space under the county development plan to facilitate a series of pocket parks and urban plazas in Sandyford Business Park.

Carlow Brewing Company subsequently lodged an appeal against Dún Laoghaire-Rathdown County Council's decision with An Bord Pleanála, but An Bord Pleanála has upheld the council's decision and said that the company's proposed production facility and visitor centre would frustrate plans for a public park and materially contravene the county development plan.
