Plans for new media screens on Ramparts Road appealed
The company who had plans for two new media screens on the Ramparts Road in Dundalk rejected by Louth County Council last month have appealed the decision to An Bord Pleanála.
Arabtec Limited were last month refused permission for the provision of two media screen signs on the south/west and north/east gable elevations of The Rampart Court.
Having lodged an appeal last week, their case is now due to be decided by January 23rd.
In reaching their decision at the time, the council said: “The two proposed media screen signs by reasons of their size, type and position on the gables of a prominent building located on a key thoroughfare within Dundalk would be visually intrusive and would seriously injure the visual amenities of the area and the residential amenity of the residents at Rampart Court, Rampart Mill and Williamson’s Place.
“Furthermore the proposed sign on the north-eastern facade requires the removal of windows serving apartment units which would adversely impact on the residential amenities of those occupants.
“It is considered that the proposed development would, therefore, set an undesirable precedent for similar type developments and be contrary to proper planning and sustainable development of the area.”
