Galway Bay fm newsroom – City planners have refused an application to retain a mobile coffee van in Salthill.

The proposal led by Mc Hugh Property Holdings Ltd sought the retention of an adapted mobile vehicle for the sale of hot drinks and snacks at a site in Pollnarooma West.

City planners turned down the retention application based on four main considerations.

One states the retention of the van on lands specifically zoned for recreational and amenity purposes does not fall within any of the zoning categories or uses which would be open for consideration.

It’s also stated it would result in poor contextual reference to the existing high quality coastal environment and the existing built form at the location.

Galway Bay fm newsroom – There are calls for the Bailey Point business premises and apartment complex in Salthill to be given a ‘face lift.’

City Councillor Clodagh Higgins has expressed her frustration that Galway City Council will not intervene and resolve the decline of the external parts of the building.

Councillor Higgins has described the development in its current state as ‘an eyesore,’ due to large amount of plaster falling from the exterior.

She says she’s been working with the Local Authority and apartment owners to try and reach a satisfactory conclusion on the matter, however, structural defects to the external facade of the development cannot be pursued under planning enforcement.

The Fine Gael Councillor has also written to the Housing Minister Darragh O’Brien requesting a policy change in the interest of maintaining the positive features of the structure and ensuring falling debris will no longer pose a health and safety risk.
