Eyre Square planning appeal

A decision by Galway City Council to permit the demolition of the Eyre Square entrance to the Eyre Square Shopping Centre has been appealed to An Bord Pleanála. Shancar Development Limited had been granted permission to demolish the existing building and construct a new building for retail use that would consist of basement, ground and two upper floors, and which would link into the existing mall.

Nearby traders had objected to the plans, suggesting that the proposed new retail unit would limit access from Eyre Square for customers to existing retail units in the centre, in addition to diminishing the presence and visibility of existing units.
