A major forty berth marina and eight detached houses are included in the plans for a significant Longford tourism project.

Raymond and Ann Brogan are seeking planning permission from Longford County Council to construct eight detached two storey houses, each with individual boating berths, and a forty berth marina, along with 43 car parking spaces at Cloondara, Co Longford.

Last December, Raymond and Ann Brogan also applied to the local authority for permission to construct a glamping development at Glebe, Cloondara, consisting of one cottage, four lodges, eight glamping pods, thirteen campervan parking facility bays, thirteen car parking bays and sixteen cycle stands.

The houses will be complete with separate driveways connecting to a proposed new service road, pedestrian footpaths, proposed access point on the southern boundary onto the existing public road including entrance wall, piers and gates, with connection to all existing services and all associated ancillary works.  

The marina plan incorporates entrance onto the Camlin River, with Breakwater/Rock Armour, retaining walls, lighting bollards, distribution units, service bollards, shore isolation panels including 43 car parking spaces.

The development also includes the modification of the existing access point onto the existing public road on the Eastern boundary for the provision of Hardstanding and slipway and all associated ancillary works. 

Submissions in relation to the planned development can be made to the local authority by March 7 and planners are expected to make their decision on the planning application by March 28 next.
