Beach Coffee Dock Appeal

A Cork businessman has appealed a decision by Cork County Council  refusing planning permission for a Coffee Dock on Garretstown Beach.garretstown1121

Denis Calnan has lodged an appeal with An Bord Pleanála in a bid to overturn the council’s decision to reject his plans to build a single-storey coffee dock on the beach near Ballinspittle.
Council planners ruled the development was proposed for a site that is located within part of a recognised “high value” landscape which justified refusing the application on the basis it would be “visually incongruous in this sensitive scenic area”. 
Mr Calnan from Lehenaghmore, Farmers Cross, had a similar planning application refused by the local authority earlier this year.
However, he subsequently became aware that a previous structure existed at the same location. The former structure   was used to house staff working in a hotel at Garretstown before it was demolished around 15 years ago.
Consultants acting for Mr Calnan said he wanted to construct a permanent structure that would serve takeaway beverages and pre-prepared snacks on a year-round basis similar to those offered by other mobile vans in the nearby car-park and on the approach road to the beach.
 “This would allow for controlled and organised use of the lands and greatly reduce casual, unstructured parking of vehicles in the area,” they said.
 A ruling in the case by An Bord Pleanála is due by mid-March 2022.
