Developer 'disappointed' at planning refused for hospital

Property developer Owen O’Callaghan has expressed “bitter disappointment” at the refusal by An Bord Pleanála to grant planning permission for an €80 million, 93-bed private hospital on Lancaster Quay on the Western Road in Cork, writes Barry Roche.

The board ruled against the hospital on flooding concerns, even though it recognised the site did not flood last year.

O’Callaghan Properties said “even in the midst of the most cataclysmic weather conditions” in November 2009, the site did not flood and this was recognised by An Bord Pleanála.
