A decision will be made by the end of September.

Center Parcs has lodged planning permission for a major extension to its facilities in Newcastle Wood.

The firm is seeking permission from Longford County Council to build 198 new lodges,  as well as an extension to it spa and sub tropical swimming pool feature.

Last month the holiday firm confirmed that over one million people have visited Longford forest since it opened in August of 2019.

The company announced in June of last year that it hoped to invest over €80million euro on a major extension to the 300 plus lodges already on site in Newcastle Wood and in January confirmed that due to unforeseen issues with design and surveying, the planning application was delayed.

However, Longford County Council has now received the application, for 198 new lodges located at three different zones within the footprint of the existing 160 hectare site.

The majority of the new lodges will be three bedroom, with a number of executive lodges also being planned for.

Centre Parcs also hopes to develop a new coffee shop, lakeside restaurant,  and energy centre as well as expanding the spa and developing a new 850metre square swimming pool  at its sub tropical paradise  and increase the size of the sports hall

An additional 313 staff car parking spaces are also to be  created and electric vehicle charging points will also be installed.

The plans are currently in pre-validation and it's understood that  a decision will be made by the end of September.
