A decision made by Mayo County Council to grant full planning permission for a development including five self-contained glamping pods has been appealed to An Bord Pleanala.

In October of this year, Mayo County Council granted planning permission for the development at Sunrise B & B in the Carrowmore-Lacken area.

The proposed works include closing up the existing entrance on the southwest corner of the site and replacing it with an entrance to the front boundary.

Also included was the development of five self-contained glamping pods with on-site services and the installation of 300sqm of free-standing solar panels and a plant room.

Other works consisted of the development of an on-site wastewater treatment unit, a proposed reception area within the existing building and all other associated site works.

A number of submissions were made regarding this proposed development. However, Mayo County Council followed the recommendation of their Senior Executive Planner’s report and granted planning permission for the development.

This decision has been appealed and will now be assessed by An Bord Pleanála. A decision on this case will be made by March 22, 2024.
