Clare business park seeking planning extension for block

Car Tourismo Banner

AN EXTENSION has been sought to the appropriate period of planning permission for an addition to Westpark of another mixed-use, multi-storey block.

The proposed Block 6,000 would have a total gross internal area of 12,045 square metres, with offices on the upper floors and data centre/light industrial/storage/R&D uses on the lower levels.

It would have a gross internal area of 12,945 square metres. 

The application also covers the construction of an ancillary, multi-deck car park, which would be located to the south of the existing Block 4000.

It would have 580 spaces and would replace an existing car park, and another proposed car park for which planning permission has already been granted.

A projected start date for the new development is given as September 4, 2023, while the application seeks to extend the duration of planning until December 31, 2024.

It predicts that work would be completed by the end of October 2024. 

The application claims that the proposal would add to the campus, much of which has already been completed.

“Extensive and substantial works have been completed in respect of the wider campus (as per the description of the planning permission) with the construction of most of the Campus’s central and perimeter open space, drainage and road network, Blocks 3000, 4000 and 7000 (which are occupied) as well as the substantial ground and basement level structures on Block 2000 and 3000.”

It claimed that the time extension is justified as the proposal would further enhance the campus.

The planning application has been made by FGPO Ireland Limited Partnership 6.
