Edenderry GAA approved planning permission for state-of-the-art development
A planning application for Edenderry GAA's ambitious development works has been approved by Offaly County Council subject to a number of conditions.
The works include provision for the changing of the size and site position of an artificial playing surface and accompanying floodlights, changes to the size of existing natural playing surfaces, ball-stopping nets, and an extension to the existing single-storey dressing room building and viewing stand.
The development will also include a two-storey extension to the existing clubhouse building, with modifications both inside and out, along with newly laid paving.
It also allows for the provision of a single-storey maintenance and equipment room, new gates, car parking, bus parking and bicycle spaces and stands, a children's play area, security fencing, as well as landscaping on site.
The council has now given the go ahead to this project in full with the conditions attached surrounding traffic safety and management, drainage, adequate waste management and construction working times which are restricted to 7.30am to 6.30pm on weekdays and 8am to 1.30pm on Saturdays.
Work has already begun on the expansive Edenderry GAA development, including new pitches on a site adjacent to the existing club grounds. When completed, the development will make the North Offaly clubs one of the most advanced in the country in terms of facilities.
