Fourth times the charm for Supermacs’ motorway plaza plan?

SUPERMACS’ owner Pat McDonagh has lodged the newest planning application in a long-running attempt to develop a motorway service station on the outskirts of Ennis. A planning application has been lodged with Clare County Council for the proposed development at Kilbreckan, Doora.
This is the fast-food chain’s fourth application for a Barack Obama Plaza style development adjacent to Junction 12 of the M18. Details of the proposal include the construction of a service station building with convenience shop, food court, staff facilities, canopy, fuel facilities, parking and circulation space, children’s play area, picnic area and access provision.
The development application also includes plans for infrastructural works, public lighting, signage, landscaping, internal fencing, electrical substation, 16 electric car charging points, roof mounted solar panels, storm water runoff, petrol interceptors and attenuation system, on-site wastewater treatment plant including access road, pumping station and connection to public foul sewer, drainage improvement works, underground fuel storage tanks, rain water harvesting system, connection to public water supply, underground storage tanks for fire-fighting purposes, underground rain water harvesting tanks, works to improve visibility at access point, upgrade to adjacent roundabout and ancillary works.
According to the plans if given the go-ahead the connection to the public sewerage system will be by means of a rising main to an existing public sewer. Speaking previously to The Clare Champion about the proposal, Mr McDonagh confirmed the €10 million development will be a scaled down version of previous plans for the site. If the plans are given the green-light the development is expected to create around 130 full and part time jobs.
