Long vacant commercial units in Oranmore will get a new lease of life as a restaurant under plans approved by the county council.
Planning permission has been granted Raviolo Verde Limited for the conversion of Units A – D of the Carraig Lair Shopping Centre in Oranmore.
The development will involve amalgamating all four units, and for changing their use to a restaurant.
The four commercial units are currently vacant, and have not been used since the shopping centre was first built.
A cover letter for the projects states that it is expected that the new restaurant will create 10 permanent jobs for the area.
“There is ample car parking on site to cater for the patrons. There is both surface car parking, and a basement car park which is available for use.”
“The restaurant is also located in Oranmore village so patrons can easily walk to same without having to drive.”
“As the restaurant forms part of a larger commercial holding, there is an established delivery practice and set down area.”
The restaurant will primarily operate as a dine-in business, the cover letter states, with an ancillary takeaway option.
Planning permission for the project was granted by Galway County Council with eleven conditions attached.
