I presume both would be manufacturing? Surprised at Nissan especially, manufacturing of cars has largely been a complete failure in Ireland.

It may not be assembly. It could be components. Or software related. Cars / planes have a lot of electronics & code in them, these days.

The Tánaiste says he remains confident that the near €30m in state funding which is required to deliver the stalled Cork events centre project can be delivered.

Simon Coveney said today that efforts are ongoing to bring clarity to the funding and financing of the now enlarged proposed 6,000-capacity venue on South Main St, where costs have soared from around €50m to €80m in the last four years.

It was his first public comment on the status of the funding negotiations since developers BAM submitted new designs for one section of the venue, and provided answers on foot of city planners’ requests for further information in relation to its planning application for the enlarged venue.

A planning decision is expected early next month.

Green light for 274 homes on grounds of former Blackrock convent
Robert McNamara
PERMISSION has been granted for the building of 274 homes on the grounds of the former Ursuline Convent in Blackrock despite local concerns about the traffic network.

Glenveagh Homes Limited applied directly to An Bord Pleanála to build two apartment blocks, comprising a mixture of one, two and three-bed units.

The application was made under the Strategic Housing Development (SHD) scheme which allows developers to bypass local authorities for large-scale housing projects exceeding 100 homes.

People who had made submissions on the planning application were notified by letter that planning has been approved for the project to the northeast of the former Convent building close to Blackrock pier, subject to 24 conditions being met.

Local independent councillor Kieran McCarthy said locals are not against local housing projects but stated he has concerns about the scale and density of the development and the consequences for traffic.

A primary school and school are already located on the grounds of the convent.

“Before the local elections, it was a big topic on the doors. Every second house was asking about it,” Mr McCarthy told The Echo.

“People realise that houses and apartments have to go in but not at the scale that is proposed. There are a lot of concerns about the road structure going in and out of the site, especially as there are two schools within the complex and it opens out onto a narrow cobbled junction at Blackrock Pier. There’s one way in and one way out to this enormous habitation.

“People have already expressed disappointment to me. I had questioned the sale of this project and what was being put in to address the traffic element. In the conditions, I don’t see anything that addresses scale or the traffic issue. The conditions appear to be soft and I remain concerned about the development.

“Sometimes you wonder with SHD applications if local voices are being heard from the ground. It’s quite worrying,” Mr McCarthy added.

Michelle Fagan of An Bord Pleanála stated in the decision to grant planning permission that density and traffic were not regarded as a barrier to the development.

“The proposed development would constitute an acceptable residential density at this location, would not seriously injure the residential or visual amenities of the area or of property in the vicinity, would not detract from the character and setting of the protected structure or other nearby protected structures, would be acceptable in terms of urban design, height and quantum of development, and would be acceptable in terms of pedestrian and traffic safety and convenience,” Ms Fagan said.

Investment in Cork Roads – Lakeview Roundabout slip road, Midleton.....

Work is due to commence shortly on the construction of a slip road at Lakeview Roundabout on the N25 outside Midleton.

In July 2018, Cork County Council secured Part 8 planning permission to construct the slip road to allow traffic approaching from the R630/629 travelling towards Carrigtwohill, Little Island and the Cork city area to access the N25 more easily.

The slip road, once constructed, should alleviate congestion, particularly in the mornings, for traffic approaching the roundabout from Whitegate, Ballycotton, Cloyne and Ballinacurra. In addition to those who have a daily commute through Lakeview Roundabout, the roundabout also provides the only access to the N25 for heavy vehicles from Whitegate Oil Refinery. As there are often substantial tailbacks the expected subsequent reductions in commuting times will be welcomed.

Traffic congestion and road safety at Lakeview Roundabout are of paramount concern to everyone who travels through the roundabout. As well as daily commuters, large numbers of school buses also travel through the roundabout during term-time to access the four secondary and five primary schools in Midleton.

Cork County Council has already completed a large amount of design, preparatory works and topographical surveys prior to the planning process and it is understood that work is due to begin soon.Additional improvements will be also needed at the roundabout in the future to further ease traffic delays.
