Planning Approval in Carrick-on-Suir to be Challenged by Residents

950

An approved planning application for parking in Carrick-on-Suir is to be legally challenged by local residents.

Sean Tracey Park Residents Association are objecting to a portion of Sean Healy Park being converted for parking.

The application was made under the part 8 rules and was passed by three votes to two by local councillors at a recent meeting.

The residents association wish to retain Sean Healy Park as a public amenity rather than to lose some of it to provide car parking spaces.

The group had engaged extensively with the local council leading up to Christmas, but could not reach an agreement on town regeneration.

While the group are in favour of town improvement as outlined in the regeneration plan, they believe some better choices can be included, especially as it includes Sean Healy Park.

The residents group have now started Judicial Review proceedings seeking to quash the decision of Tipperary County Council to proceed with the Carrick-on-Suir Regeneration Plan.

Legal proceedings were launched on the 8th of February 2022 and adjourned until to March 16th.

Sean Tracey Park Residents Association have retained the services of FP Logue Solicitors and are now appealing for support from the public to help cover legal costs.
