Peter McVerry Trust to give two Limerick City properties new lease of life

The properties at 28 and 29 Lower Gerald Griffin Street.

THE PETER McVerry Trust is to deliver four apartments in Limerick City following the granting of permission by Limerick City and County Council.

The charity had applied for change of use permission for a property on Lower Gerald Griffin Street from a medical centre and administration building to residential use.

Included in the application were plans to develop two one-bedroom apartments and two two-bedroom apartments to the buildings at 28 and 29 Lower Gerald Griffin Street.

Planning permission was originally granted in 2017 but had subsequently lapsed.

Council planners granted permission for the development of the properties, which are both protected structures.

The Council attached eight conditions to the plans, including that the footpath on Lower Gerald Griffin Street and Barrack Lane, which the property fronts onto, be rebuilt.

Planners also said that the works to be done would be undertaken in accordance with best conservation practices and that an experienced conservation architect or engineer be appointed to oversee the works.

The developer must also submit a document with all proposed materials for the interior and exterior to the Council for approval before works can begin.
