New plans submitted for landmark development in heart of Kilkenny city
Progress on a landmark development in the heart of Kilkenny’s historic city-centre continues apace.
This week Kilkenny County Council received a planning request from Kilkenny Abbey Quarter Development Partnership seeking permission to build a car park at what is known as the Abbey Quarter development.
The developers are looking for a seven-year licence for a temporary car park that will be able to accommodate 120 cars and seven coaches on the site of the old Smithwicks Brewery at St Canice’s Place.
In its application, Kilkenny Abbey Quarter Development Partnership said: “The proposed development will involve the provision of 120 car parking spaces and seven coach parking spaces.”
The application also states that a nature impact statement will also be submitted.
The lcoao authority will decide on the planning application in the New Year.
