Aldi Store Permission Overtturned

An Bord Pleanála refused Aldi Chain-Store to open at White Sands Hotel beside Portmarnock 's Beautiful Velvet Strand Beach, opposite The Martello Tower.

In March Fingal County Council gave approval for the development in face of over fifty objections and massive resident outrage.

Local Labour county councillor Peter Coyle informed Fingal County Council of the objections and appealed on David O’Connor (director of planning when the development plan was drafted ) on a number of occasions about the general public outrage and the insufficient attention to the county development plan.
