Planning permission for a proposed remote working hub in a North Longford village has been appealed to An Bord Pleanála.
The application had been lodged for the transformation of an existing public house on St. Mary's Street in Drumlish, into the mixed use development.
Plans for the ground floor include a reception, kitchen/canteen area, office, meeting room, individual hub stations and hot desk sections, along with an accessible self-catering apartment.
While first floor level and attic would be transformed and extended to include 6 further self-catering apartments. Seamus Gallagher received planning permission for the project from Longford County Council in October, with 9 conditions attached.
An appeal has now been lodged against the development by Brian McNamara and Owen Quinn, with concerns highlighted including a lack of car parking spaces, privacy issues with adjoining properties and an argument that the project would be an overdevelopment in the village. An Bord Pleanála will decide on the issue in March.
