AN Bord Pleanala has put back the date for making a decision on whether to grant planning permission for an Aldi supermarket in Dunshaughlin.
The Board had been due to rule on the appeal on 1st November but has postponed the decision date to 27th November.
In June, Meath County Council granted planning permission to Aldi Stores (Ireland) Ltd for the discount food on a 0.61 hectares site on the Lagore Road, and to the rear of properties on the east side of Dunshaughlin’s Main Street. However this decision was appealed by Express Check-Out (Dunshaughlin).
Aldi's plans include the demolition of an existing building on the site and the construction of a single story discount foodstore, including off-licence, with a gross floor area of 1,540 sq metres and a net retail area of 1,140 sq metres. Access is proposed from the Lagore Road.
