Permission refused for extensive Tramore motorhome, surf and glamping development

Permission refused for extensive Tramore motorhome, surf and glamping development

Permission has been refused for an extensive development proposed for Tramore Burrow, adjacent to the carpark.

The camping, glamping, food, and surf development was intended for lands owned by Waterford Castle Hotel and Golf Club Limited.

In an application first submitted on September 9th of last year, Mr. Rory Aengus Walsh outlined his plans to develop an extensive motorhome park on the lower prom.

On lands adjacent to the Burrows Carpark, Mr. Walsh intended to have 53 motorhome pitches, 4 family glamping pods, together with playground and parking areas.

Additionally, he sought to construct a 1 storey surf club and motor home building inclusive of showers and changing rooms.

On the same site, it was proposed to have a street food plaza, with 8 food trucks, seating areas, and a kitchen.

Following their receipt of documents under a Further Information request, Waterford Council refused the application.

Just one reason was given for the decision, with the Council stating flood risk and the impact of climate change had not been adequately addressed.

The refusal continued to say that the proposed development as it stands is at risk of flooding, and therefore is not permitted.

Mr. Walsh has four weeks within which to appeal the decision.
