TESCO in Kilrush have six months to supply further information to the planning department at Kilrush Town Council, with regard to an application for the provision of a petrol station at their Ennis Road outlet.
Despite being refused permission by An Bord Pleanála last May to develop a four island petrol station, Tesco again applied to Kilrush Town Council to open a similarly sized petrol station in the town.
The town council initially granted planning permission in October 2008 for the proposed development subject to 13 conditions before An Bórd Pleanála overturned the decision following an appeal.
The appeal was made by the Irish Petrol Retailers Association last June. This decision was taken despite An Bord Pleanála inspector Aisling Cunnane’s recommendation that the development be allowed to go ahead.
Tesco Kilrush now have until May 15, 2010 to provide the further information required by Kilrush Town Council if they are to be given planning permission to build a petrol station.
