  • Cash Exchange Shop with Ancillary Pawning deemed not to require Planning Permission

    A question came before An Bord Pleanala from Kildare County Council as to whether the change of use from a shop to a shop with the taking in of precious metals/jewellery in exchange for cash for pre-sales purposes, including the option of a pawning financial service for such items at “Cash Encounters” in Edward Street, Newbridge, County Kildare is or is not development or is or is not exempted development.

    An Bord Pleanála has concluded that the said change of use from a shop to a shop with the taking in of precious metals/jewellery in exchange for cash for re-sale purposes, including the option of a pawning financial service for such items does not, within the specific circumstances pertaining in the referral shop unit, constitute development under section 3(1) of the Planning and Development Act, 2000, as amended, as it is considered that while the option of a pawning service does constitute a change of use, it is ancillary and minor in nature to the principal use as a shop and is not, therefore, development.
