It has been confirmed that planning permission has now been approved for the redevelopment of the former Annesley Motors site along Ballybough Road.
Now that permission for a new LIDL store, café and two retail units has been granted, I understand that LIDL hope to be in a position to start construction work in the Autumn with an envisaged opening by Summer 2023. I welcome this confirmation and the steps that have been taken to address concerns raised during the planning process.
As a result, Ballybough will benefit from €14m investment with the creation of 35 permanent jobs in LIDL and a further 100 jobs possible during the development phase of the project.
If you would like further information or require clarification arising from the details outlined above, please email me at RayMcAdam@gmail.com.
