Planning authority says Gaeilscoil can proceed to development at the Tank Field.
An Bord Pleanala has overturned a Cork City Council decision for a second time and granted approval for the construction of a new Gaeilscoil, on the grounds of the Tank Field in Mayfield. The area in question is zoned as a sports field , and has been at the centre of a contentious argument for several years. The planning authority said it believed it wasn`t constrained in granting permission even though the City Council voted against approval last July because it considered the development would constitute a material contravention of the City Development Plan. Local residents say they`re concerned that An Bord Pleanala would overturn the decision of the local authority and that a campaign to preserve the Tank Field will be vigorously pursued.
