Council grants Planning Permission for bigger Lidl Store in Greystones

Wicklow Co Co has granted permission for a 60% larger Lidl store at Blacklion with a reduced number of parking spaces. I had objected to this as it will increase the already bad traffic jams in the area and the Council has now made a condition that they must provide land for a left turn lane and an inset bus stop. This will help traffic flow but there are no funds to do the work at the junction. I don’t think this extra commercial activity should happen until the junction is rebuilt as otherwise traffic jams at Blacklion will get much worse. I am considering appealing this to Bord Pleanala.
