Cork City Council Decides Not To Approve Plans For New Bar, Restaurant And Accommodation Venue On Site Of Former Rochestown Inn Building In Co. Cork

Cork City Council has decided not to approve an application for planning permission to construct a new bar, restaurant and accommodation venue on the site of the former Rochestown Inn building in Rochestown, Co. Cork.

As reported by The Irish Examiner, developer John Sweeney and his son applied for permission to build a new bar, restaurant and accommodation venue on the site of the former Rochestown Inn building, which was condemned following a fire in 2015.

Details Of The Plans

The plans for the site proposed demolishing the existing derelict Rochestown Inn building and subsequently constructing a new two and a half storey building in its place that would contain a bar, restaurant, function room and 11 bedroom suites, as well as a separate building containing two apartments.

Reasons For Refusing Planning Permission

However, planners at Cork City Council decided not to approve the plans due to their beliefs that the proposed development's design is "visually awkward", lacks "architectural coherence" and would be "out of character" with the surrounding area.

The council's planners also noted that the proposed development could have an adverse impact on traffic in the area.
