Plans to redevelop a hotel and leisure centre in a Cork town have been lodged with City Hall’s planning department.
Irish Conference and Leisure Holdings Limited have applied for permission for a mixed-use development on the site of the former Blarney Park Hotel and Leisure Centre, on St Ann’s Road, Monacnapa, Blarney.
The proposed development includes provision for an 80-bedroom hotel, a licensed supermarket, a café, an office building, and a commercial building over an extensive 16,780 sq m.
The hotel is proposed to range between three and four storeys in height, and will include a fitness facility and a rooftop garden, among other features.
The proposed supermarket will be more than 2,205 sq m, and incorporates extensive parking facilities for 88 vehicles.
The coffee shop proposed will be of two storey equivalent height, as will the office building. The commercial building will range in equivalent height between one to two storeys and a restaurant/delicatessen is proposed to be included.
The plans are currently at pre-validation stage, with Cork City Council due to make a decision on whether it can proceed by the end of October.
