Co. Tipperary soccer club has secured planning permission for multi-games area

Clonmel Town FC's playing grounds at the Dr Pat O'Callaghan Sports Complex.

A Clonmel soccer club has secured conditional planning permission to develop a new multi-use games area on its grounds. 

Clonmel Town FC, based at the Dr. Pat O’Callaghan Sports Complex on the Cashel Road, submitted the application to Tipperary County Council on August 13 seeking permission to construct this new playing facility for “youth development” at the south eastern end of its site. 

The project also involves the construction of a retaining wall, fencing, footpaths, an access ramp, drainage and works to site boundaries. 

The County Council granted permission for the new development on Monday, September 30. The club will receive final grant of permission for the project a month from the date of the Council's decision if no planning appeals are lodged in the meantime.
