Richmond Rugby Club strikes a deal with developer
Published Date: 02 October 2008
RICHMOND Rugby Club is canvassing councillors to have its existing
Rhebogue property rezoned for residential development after striking
a deal with developers McCarthy and Woulfe to provide new pitches
and a clubhouse nearby at Angler's Walk.
The Limerick Leader has learned that the club – which is seeking
planning permission to build 76 houses and apartments on their
current site – has asked the Council's largest political grouping – Fine
Gael – to support the rezoning from open space to residential.
It is understood that McCarthy and Woulfe have agreed to build
"state-of-the-art" pitches, training facilities and a clubhouse for
Richmond at Angler's Walk in return for Richmond's current lands.
Residents in Drominbeg have objected to the proposed housing
development on parking and traffic grounds.
