Retails developments in pipeline get green light
Despite the plentiful supply of retail space a number of new retail developments are in the pipeline in the greater Dublin Area.
Bord Pleanala has given the green light for Tesco to develop a large new store at Vevay Road, Bray, Co Wicklow.
With its 464 parking spaces, the new outlet should help boost shopping in Bray.
Meanwhile rivals Lidl have received Dublin City Council's approval for a 2,264sqm discount food store with a bakery and off licence at the site of the former Sunday World building in Terenure Village in south Dublin.
Its 74-space car park should also benefit other retailers in the village where Tesco has applied for a development on the pub site owned by developer Noel Smyth.
Meanwhile Dun Laoghaire Rathdown County Council has approved Cosgrave Brothers' plans for a neighbourhood centre at its Honeypark development at the former Dun Laoghaire Golf Club.
