An appeal has been lodged with An Bord Pleanála by a local solicitor against Louth County Council’s decision to grant conditional planning permission for a new language school at Jocelyn Place.

In April The Language Place owners Richard and Annemarie Keogh applied to Louth County Council for planning permission to change the existing offices at 2 Jocelyn Place into a language school on the first and second floor with ancillary storage on the third floor.

As part of their application they had also applied for permission for an ancillary apartment at the basement and ground floor annex. The works to the protected structure were also to include internal and external alterations.

That application was granted conditional approval last month but now an appeal has been lodged against that decision by local solicitor Sean T O’Reilly, who is the owner/occupier of the adjoining premisses Bantry House at 2/3 Jocelyn Place.

He claims that a substantial part of the ground floor and part of the first floor of 2 Jocelyn Place is in his ownership and is accessed from No 3. He points out that the building was originally a townhouse before being amalgamated with No 3 in the late 1970s, resulting in the building being sub-divided into separate ownership.

He said he would be directly impacted by the works were they to proceed and argues that if they were to go ahead it is inevitable that damage would be caused to the structure of his premises and would effect his business. He also expressed concerns about the additional traffic that a school would create in the area.

The Language Place school has been operating in Dundalk for a number of years and is currently based in Francis Street.

A decision on the appeal is due to be made by October 31st.
