A decision was due late last month on the Lisdaran project.

More information has been requested on the proposed development of a new medical centre for Cavan.

A decision was due late last month for the €20 million project.

This development would see a fully serviced, three-story medical centre at Lisdaran in Cavan Town.

It would be developed at the same site as the previously permitted 160-bed nursing home.

The project would include an extension of the existing access road, extra parking, drop-off areas, bike space, as well as drainage connections, and landscaping.

A decision was expected on the 23rd of November however, on that date further information was requested by the council.

There was one submission that raised concerns pertaining to the project.

Town planning consultant David Mooney on behalf of local resident Jim Elliot had six objections including that the centre wouldn't integrate into surroundings, there were flood risks, and it would exacerbate the impact of the previously permitted nursing home.

Based on that the decision on planning permission has been delayed with the council requesting 12 areas be addressed to provide further information.

They want a 'conceptual plan', a visual impact assessment, co-ordination with Irish Water, and reviews of entrances, the access road, and the parking layout, among other clarifications.

The group over the application, Lisdaran Partnership, now has 6 months to respond.
