Does the northside really have population for similar retail to Raheen/Castletroy? In addition, presumably the more affluent parts are unlikely to shop at a local development on the northside. Also some of the northside is walking distance to the city centre.
Plus there is the Jetland centre (which is not exactly thriving) – thus ensuring Coonagh Cross has even less attraction.
I really doubt extending Coonagh Cross would save it – it would merely mean a greater white elephant than at present.
As has already been mentioned, it was Limerick County Council who approved this development because of course this area was under their jurisdiction at that time. Its pretty clear that the County Council have a very different interpretation of the Mid West Retail Strategy than their city counterparts. Unfortunately out in County Hall â‚¬â‚¬â‚¬â‚¬â‚¬ seems to be more important than proper planning!:rolleyes: Its fair to say Coonagh Cross would not have been given the go ahead by the City Council.
Speaking of the Jetland, the Bank of Ireland are to open a branch in the unit originally set aside for a Library/medical centre.
Permission to install hardwood timber security doors, 2 no. ATM machines & post/data delivery hatch, replace surrounding glazing with render to the West elevation, the addition of security bollards to North & East elevations, the addition of emergency escape & cash in transit door openings and new glazed entrance system to East elevation, replace existing glazing with security glazing throughout, the addition of signage to all elevations and all associated site works at the vacant Medical Centre/Library.
