Tesco, Roscrea Chamber of Commerce, and Bernie’s Supervalu, have all lodged appeals against Aldi’s plans to expand into the town.
North Tipperary County Council granted planning permission to the German retail giant on February 19th to demolish existing buildings on the Gantly road, in order to make way for the construction of a single storey discount foodstore (to include off licence use) with a gross floor area of 1,565 sqm. (net retail area 1,140 sqm.)
The development includes the construction of one free standing “L” shaped internally illuminated sign, three internally illuminated gable signs and entrance glass signage.
The proposed development would be served by 79 car parking spaces and four bicycle stands. Vehicular access to the site will be provided from the Gantly Road. The proposed development includes the construction of an ESB substation, and all landscaping and site development works are located on a 0.48 hectare site.
