Large Structure In Clogheen To Be Investigated By Tipperary County Council Enforcement Officer


An investigation is underway by Tipperary County Council Enforcement Officer into a large structure constructed at an Eir Exchange in Clogheen.

It follows a letter sent to the local authority by Fine Gael councillor Marie Murphy last week.

Cllr Murphy says Clogheen is included in the Architectural Conservation Areas and therefore special character is preserved under the provisions of the Tipperary County Development Plan.

The local councillor says the 12meter high structure in Clerihan did not require planning permission, as it was deemed exempt and it’s possible that Eir thought the same would apply in Clogheen. 

A letter will also be sent to Eir on today by Tipperary County Council highlighting the fact that the works in Clogheen do need planning due to the Eir exchange being within the Architectural Conservation Area.

The Fine Gaeler has previously said the lack of consultation with the local community on this issue is totally wrong.
