The application also provided for bin storage, cycle parking, pedestrian & vehicular entrances, car parking, site lighting, foul and surface water drainage and all associated site development works.

Louth County Council sought further information in October of last year on the proposed development, which was received by the local authority on 28 July. The "significant" further information provided to the Council, includes a design statement, revised plans, sections and elevations, revised site plans, shadow projection drawings/details and associated report.

It also includes photomontages/3d images of the revised development, details relating to the legal ownership/title and rights of way, details relating to the roads and traffic/car parking management including electric vehicle charging, bicycle parking details and details relating to services including Irish water confirmation of feasibility and surface water attenuation structures.
