Developers’ plans could transform face of Bearna Developers’ plans could transform face of Bearna

Proposals for two separate residential and commercial developments would transform the Galway side of Bearna.

Plans for a mixed seafront development along the main road through Bearna include provision of a new traffic lights junction on the R336.

A planning application was lodged with Galway County Council for the construction of 51 homes on land south of the R336 at Freeport.

The proposal by Peter and Séona O’Fegan also involves two commercial buildings to include retail, café, and offices space at a site opposite the former Clarke’s shop site and bounded by Freeport House B&B.

Residential units include 10 individual dwellings – seven three-beds and three four-beds; and 41 duplex units with four one-beds, 21 two-beds, and 16 three-beds.

The applicants have also sought permission for two commercial buildings with a total floor space of 703 sqm including retail units (almost 100 sqm), office space (324 sqm), and café (94 sqm).

In a separate planning application, the same applicants, are proposing to build an apartment block to replace four existing buildings adjacent to Bearna National School.

This application will involve the demolition of four existing buildings, including Bearna Post Office, and the construction of 18 apartments, including three one-beds, 14 two-beds, and one three-bed.
