Development promised for derelict city street
FOLLOWING last week’s article highlighting local business people’s concerns over the under-utilisation of the Sarsfield Street Dunnes-owned shopping centre and the complete lack of use of an entire row of units by Roches Stores on Liddy Street, Roche’s Stores has said that they are applying for retention of the warehouses in Liddy Street because they are, contrary to local reports, using the buildings for storage. And they’ve promised to improve the appearance of the buildings. According to Mayor Michael Hourigan, the street looks “derelict”.
The spokesperson for Roches Stores told the Limerick Post this week that when the department store applied for ongoing planning permission, they had submitted ” a major overall development plan for the buildings which is ongoing”.
The spokesperson said that this development plan is taking “slightly longer” than they had anticipated.
“We are looking at a development plan for that whole area, but it is ongoing. In the meantime we will be looking to see if there is anything we can do to improve the appearance of the buildings,” he said.
Despite repeated contacts with Dunnes Stores, no comment was issued.
Last week the owner of Harry’s coffee shop in the Dunnes centre complained that half of the units are empty and have been so for the last five years. He accused Dunnes Stores of having no interest in promoting them and that business in the centre is “very quiet”.
