Revamp for Castlelyons
Glanbia has sought planning permission for a redevelopment of Castlelyons Creamery in Cork.
The application seeks clearance for the demolition of all existing buildings.
The dairy processor is looking to replace these buildings and to build a new Centra retail outlet, which Glanbia will then lease.
In addition, planning is being sought for 22 three- and four-bedroom houses.
