Local objection to Newcastle Supermacs outdoor seating

Published

on

Galway Bay fm newsroom – A decision by the City Council to allow Supermacs to keep an outside eating area at its Newcastle branch has been objected to.

An appeal against the decision has been submitted to An Bord Pleanála.

City planners had granted Supermacs planning permission to keep changes to the front of the building.

It includes advertising signage, the realignment of a pedestrian walkway and the removal of car spaces.

It also includes the provision of an outdoor seating area with tables and chairs and windbreakers at Supermacs Newcastle.

Strict conditions were imposed on the outdoor seating area by planners.

However, this is not sufficient for one local, who has lodged an appeal to An Bord Pleanála.

An Bord Pleanála is expected to make a decision on the outdoor seating area for Supermacs in Newcastle in November.
