A PORTLAOISE car dealer plans to build a new car showroom between two major residential areas in the town, in a development which will require alterations made to the entrance of a large housing estate on the Dublin Road.

Downeys Autostop have applied to construct a new single storey car sales showroom on a site between Rinuccini and Colliers Lane. As part of the development, it is planned to construct new access for cars and pedestrians from the existing Rinuccini estate road. The site is just opposite the location of Downeys’ existing car showroom and filling station.

A decision is now due from the council by August 25.
