Bord Pleanála examining Thomand objection
Work on the €40m redevelopment of Thomand park may be delayed for up to 4 months after a resident living near the stadium instructed his solicitor to appeal to An Bord Pleanála.
The examiner reports that solicitor for the resident Mr Eamonn Dillon says the objection is now being processed.
Mr Kiely’s solicitor, Mr Eamonn Dillon, said he had been instructed by Mr Kiely to proceed with an objection and this was being processed. This objection could hold up work for up to four months and, if upheld, could stop the entire project from going ahead.The local resident named as Taxi man Gerard Kiely had previously had his objection that the new stadium stand would block light at his home and that construction work would interfere with his sleep, thrown out by Limerick City Council.
Mr Kiely claimed the new stand would block light at his residence and, as he works by night, construction would interfere with his sleep. He also claimed increased traffic would increase car parking problems on match days.
