Planning D-day looms for proposed Ballymahon Center Parcs resort

An Bord Pleanala is due to make a decision on the Center Parcs holiday village plan next Monday, July 25.  

The planning file is now at “board level” and the eagerly awaited  decision is expected on Monday.

Center Parcs has applied to build a forest holiday village on a 164 acre site at  Newcastle Wood, Ballymahon. The proposed development would include 470 lodges, a 3 storey apartment building with 30 bedrooms and central buildings incorporating a swimming pool and facilities, external pools, rapids, flumes and water rides, sports hall, leisure activities, bowling alley, ancillary shops, food and beverage outlets and more.  The proposed development would also include an 'Aqua Sana Spa' and treatment rooms and the refurbishment of the existing Herdsman’s hut to create a Nature Centre building.  

Longford County Council granted planning permission for the development in March of this year. If it gets the go-ahead, the company plans to open the facility in 2019.
