Galway City Council queries ‘unauthorised’ roof on Crowe’s Bar outdoor area Galway City Council queries ‘unauthorised’ roof on Crowe’s Bar outdoor area

From this week’s Galway City Tribune – City planners have asked Crowe’s Bar to provide more detail about a roof erected at a space to the rear of the Bohermore pub.

The request by Galway City Council for further information from Bohermore Ventures Ltd comes as residents of Forster Court lodged an objection to the planning application for retention of the structure.

The owners of the bar have until early May to respond to the queries raised by the Director of Services for Planning, Patricia Philbin.

Ms Philbin said the development description ‘lacks detail’ and makes no reference to the use or intended functionality of the outdoor area.

The pub, which is located within Inner Residential Area of Galway City, has been asked to submit an “operation/management plan” of this area.

The plan should include details on the proposed operations, management and protocols of this outdoor area.

The Council has requested that the plan should include details of operating hours, details of use of amplified music, staff monitoring, disposal of waste including glass bottles which should be at times which will not disturb neighbours, and noise mitigation measures.

Over the past three years, according to the planning files, residents in Forster Court have been raising concerns about a section to the rear of the bar which they claimed was built without planning permission.

The matter has also been before Galway District Court.
