Extension of planning permission for 'Tipperary Venue'

Tipperary Co Council has granted an extension of duration of planning permission for the 'Tipperary Venue', a massive mixed-use leisure campus planned for Two Mile Borris.

A key feature of the development is a 15,000-person capacity venue to hold concerts, sports fixtures and other events. Among the many other planned elements are a 500-bedroom hotel, an equestrian centre, an 18-hole golf course, a greyhound track, 31 retail units and almost 6,000 car parking spaces. A 'Hoban Memorial', banqueting suite and museum with a 'reproduction' of Lafayette Park, are also included.

A casino, which was part of the original plan for the site, has been omitted.

Planning permission for the development is held by Richard Quirke, who recently applied to extend its duration, citing the economic downturn as the reason why development has not yet commenced.

The council has agreed to extend the permission until March 2023.
