Irish Conference and Leisure Holdings Limited sought approval for a mixed-use development on the site of the former Blarney Park Hotel and Leisure Centre, on St Ann’s Road.

The Echo reports an Bord Pleanála’s inspector raised concerns about the size of the development, that it would be out of character with the area and would impact of the architectural conservation and the heritage value of the area.
