This is indeed the final go-ahead for the Parkway Valley shopping centre that is being developed beside the existing retail park. Its been in the pipeline now for almost 3 years, the original application was submitted in early 2005 but has been modified a couple of times since.
You would really have to question whether there is any demand for yet another suburban shopping centre, especially in the Parkway/Childers road area where there has been an explosion of retail parks in the last couple of years, it smacks of overkill to me. Also where exactly is the road infrastructure to support this? Its also yet another example of the inability of both Limerick local authorities to work together or more to the point it basically shows why a boundary extension is so urgently required.
The public park is definitely a welcome development but I just wonder about this â€œauditoriumâ€, what size complex are we talking about here?, is it going to be like a mini conference centre?
provision of new multi-functional sports and performance auditorium(to accommodate ice rink, sports/basketball court, theatre) and associated concessions and health, lifestyle and well-being centre incorporating physical therapy, lifestyle therapy, holistic/alternative therapy, gym/yoga, reception/admin, tearooms, beauty therapy suites, treatment rooms and sports injury clinic; cafe/juice bar, new management suite/control room to replace previously permitted library reference room and ancillary area.
