Local councillor Ger Keohane said the height of the building is a major concern.
“There are three apartment blocks next to this potential development that are about eight or nine storeys. A development such as this would take away from the character of the Glanmire area. It will affect the view of residents in Brookville, Edenbrook and Glyntown," he said.
“The road infrastructure also won’t be able to take this with the Ballinglanna development. The flood prevention scheme is due for quarter three of this year and this will have an impact,” he added.
