A decision is expected next week, on Monday April 19. Probably won't be published for a few days after that.

No mention of it in An Bord Pleanala's weekly decisions list. Often they can get put back.

Planning has been refused. The An Bord Pleanala decision is up on the City Council page for the file. Down at the bottom.

From the Board's website -

REASONS AND CONSIDERATIONS
Having regard to the nature and extent of the alterations proposed, and in particular,
the proposed complete removal of the arcade, and display areas/shop fronts forming
the same, it is considered that the proposed development would result in irrevocable
loss of the function and use of Winthrop Arcade, which though not included in the
Record of Protected Structures is highlighted on the National Inventory of
Architectural Heritage and recommended for inclusion in the same. The proposed
development would, therefore, adversely affect the built and architectural heritage of
the area, and be contrary to the proper planning and sustainable development of the
area.

An increasingly rare victory for common sense. Glad to see it.

A very important precedent re properties on the NIAH but overlooked at local level; although clearly from the entire contingent of Cork Archiseekers this building was clearly not overlooked. This is exactly the type of building the country needs to incubate the next generation of retail entrepreneurs; this is clearly a blessing for the owners; get marketing your voids; in the medium term this configuration and fit out will constitute a much more valuable investment with plenty of rental growth.
