PLANS to build a major new ‘drive thru’ filling station in Bohercrowe, Tipperary town, have been appealed to An Bord Pleanála. On February 15th, Tim Ryan lodged an appeal with the state planning board in relation to plans by Flancare Distribution (Clonmel) to build a new petrol station in Bohercrowe. The proposed new filling station would include a forecourt canopy, fuel dispensing pumps, underground fuel storage tanks, vehicle wash with a recycling unit and associated drainage and signage; new single storey building to include a retail shop (98.91sqm), restaurant (358.32sqm.) with a ‘Drive Thru’ facility, toilets, stores and staff accommodation, new access roads, vehicle parking, signage and on site lighting, new underground surface water attenuation and a water harvesting system. The plans were given planning permission by South Tipperary County Council on January 27th, subject to 22 conditions. Submissions were lodged by the NRA, the Department of the Environment, and HSE South. The Council granted other parties leave to appeal the‑ decision. On February 15th, Tim Ryan appealed the plans to An Bord Pleanála. The case is due to be decided on or before March 13th.
