Local businessman Michael Ryan has received permission to demolish the former 3 storey Glanbia laboratory and office quarters at the junction of Richard A Walsh Street and Davitt's Quay.

Permission grants the demolition of the existing building, and the construction of a 7 storey hotel with 42 bedrooms and one penthouse suite.


Development plans also include two function halls, a café and bar, and associated parking spaces.

The application for planning was granted by Waterford City and County Council with 21 conditions attached.

Michael Ryan is required for pay almost 75 thousand euro for the development of public infrastructure and facilities.

Additionally, 25 thousand euro is to be paid for the relocation of existing car park spaces attached to the Road Safety Authority Test Centre.
