Offaly parochial house to get facelift after planning permission granted

A parochial house in Offaly is to undergo a restoration project after Offaly County Council granted planning permission for the works this week. 

Spring Lawn Parochial House in Tober, close to the Westmeath border, is a protected structure within the Offaly County Development Plan 2014-2020 but after a re-submitted proposal, the application has now been given the green light.

The works will include repairs and alterations, including the renovation of the existing house, internal changes, modifications to the main entrance and stairs, as well as minor alterations to the internal wall layout.

The windows and doors will also be renovated, while repair work will proceed with the roof. Storage sheds will also undergo restoration work. 

The house, which was built around 1830, will see an injection of new life as a result of the project.
