The developers behind two major new developments in Cork City have lodged appeals against conditions attached to their planning permission.
Howard Holdings subsidiary Alleyquay Investments is appealing permission granted for its €1 bn Atlantic Quarter development by Cork City Council in March. A spokesman for the company said that, while there is no problem with the technical conditions attached to the planning permission, development contributions amounting to around €60 million are regarded as excessive and it is on this basis that the appeal has been lodged. However, negotiations with the City Council may lead to the withdrawal of the appeal.
Meanwhile, Elysian Tower developer Michael O'Flynn has lodged an appealing against conditions attached to its office development on the former Motorola site in Mahon. While, the council ordered no significant alterations to the development, contributions were set at €1 million.
