LIMERICK City and County Council (LCCC) have granted planning permission for an apartment development in the City Centre.

Permission was sought for the construction of a five-storey over semi-basement apartment building on Windmill Street.

The development will consist of 29 apartments, with 10 car parking spaces and level access from Cogan Street.

Limerick developer Tom Moloney is the man behind the plans, which have been granted permission by the Council.

The new building will occupy an empty site on the corner of Windmill Street and Cogan Street which has lain idle for over a decade.

The development will also have a bicycle store and bin storage area, as well as an equipment store and all ancillary works.

The plans were approved subject to 21 conditions from Council planners.

Among the conditions are that some of the development be used as social and affordable housing to comply with the Council’s Planning and Development Act, and that the developer submit the proposed colour scheme and palette of materials they intend to use during construction.
