I see from the City Council's website TP 10/34317 that Riga (one of Owen O'Callaghan's companies) has lodged another planning application for a private hospital, though this time they are calling it a clinic on Lancaster Quay. Hoepfully he'll have more luck with ABP this time around!
"for the construction of a medical clinic at the Lancaster Gate development, Lancaster Quay, Cork. The proposal allows for a modification to the permitted and partially completed hotel and apartment permission (permission t.p.04/28705 as modified by 06/31502 and T.P. 05/30361); including the omission of the permitted crÃ¨che. The proposed medical clinic will be built in the area previously allocated to the Blocks D and E (and crÃ¨che) of TP 04/28705 as modified by 06/31502; a new separate basement car park access will be developed for dedicated car park access to the proposal. The proposal also allows for the closure of the internal circulation road from the eastern to western bridge, the physical separation of the basement car park areas and the dedicated use of the existing basement ramp to provide for access to the apartments and hotel only. The proposal will consist of 93 no beds for inpatient and outpatient treatment; consisting of 46 no general beds, an intensive care unit (high dependency unit) (5 no beds), 22 no surgical day beds, 10 no recovery beds, 10 no post natal beds, staff and ancillary administrative areas, diagnostic imaging, admissions, reception, cafeteria, physiotherapy, consultant suites (10 no.), surgical theatres, pharmacy all on six floors with ancillary basement alterations and works to the existing basement, provision of plant areas and general site layout alterations. The total GFA of the proposed development is 10, 713sqm. The proposal also allows for an additional 1,017sqm of works in the basement through the provision of services and access areas to the existing permitted car parking areas"
