Express Red Long-Term Car Park
DAA plc, the group in charge of the airport, has applied to Cork City Council for permission to remove 63 spaces at the express red long-term car park at the airport.
The removal is to provide space to build a new 10kV single-storey substation with a lean-to incorporating a diesel tank bund, a generator, new fencing, gates, pedestrian crossings, and traffic calming measures.
In the application, it is noted that the need for the development is due to the installation of "additional equipment on the airfield" now and in the future, which requires additional capacity.
Due to the COVID-19 impact on international travel, the numbers using the long-term car park are down significantly.
According to Cork Airport, and it is "considered reasonable" to convert a portion of this land for a different use.
