An Bord Pleanála has granted permission for the application at Castlepark School but concerned residents have sought a judicial review and this has been given the go- ahead for a hearing in October. A Public Meeting will be held to discuss this application in full and details for this meeting will be announced later this summer.
The proposed development could have a detrimental impact on the local community in the Castle Park area including Hyde Road, Ulverton Road, Breffni Road, Castlelands, Castle Park Residence, Castle Park Road, Castle Close and the parents and pupils of Castle Park School. The members of Cuala GAA club will be greatly affected. This case is therefore an action to protect the local community.
