Today in Ballymahon, Center Parcs unveiled a full preview of its proposed plans for Center Parcs Longford Forest. The €200m development will be located on a 375 acre site at Newcastle Wood, five kilometres from Ballymahon. A detailed masterplan, scale models of the lodges and the centre buildings – including the Subtropical Swimming Paradise - and an artist’s impressions of various aspects of the village were shared with the local community and residents. This is the final in a series of community engagement days hosted by Center Parcs before the planning application is submitted in the autumn.
