Glennon Brothers have lodged a planning application with Longford County Council concerning the recently-acquired Carrigglas Manor demesne, writes Patrick Conboy.
The application, which was submitted by Glennon Brothers Investments Ltd, is a request to extend the duration of planning permission which had been granted to the previous owners of the site, and concerns the construction of a mixed use development incorporating housing units, a hotel, and leisure facilities.
The housing element concerns 331 residential units, which will include an estate village, retirement village, cluster housing, and courtyard housing.
The development will also feature a hotel, golf course with clubhouse, and change of use and alterations to the existing manor house and Gandon-designed stables - both of which are protected structures.
Alterations to gates and lodges are also proposed, along with completion of all ancillary works.
Glennon Brothers purchased Carrigglas Manor earlier this year. In addition to the works covered in this application, Longford GAA plans to develop a Centre of Excellence on the property.
