  • A large scale truck stop including a motel for truck drivers, 12 pump filling station, drive thru restaurant, driver resting area, picnic area etc at Carrickcarnon, Co, Louth has been refused permission by An Bord Pleanala.  Louth County Council had granted permission however the decision was appealed to the Board by third parties.  The truck stop was an off-line scheme but was quite close to the M1 motorway. 

    The Board refused permission inter alia on the basis of the scale of the development, the existing on-line M1 service stations, the rural location outside a settlement and the close proximity to an interchange.  The application was a revised version of an even larger scheme which had been refused by the Council.

    It is of note that the NRA had not objected to the scheme.
