Plans have been submitted to the county council to replace a former bar and nightclub in Tuam Town with a new apartment building and shops.
P&C Investments Ltd is seeking planning permission to demolish part of the Sportsman’s Inn pub on Vicar Street in Tuam, as well as Apache Pizza and part of the former Source nightclub fronting onto Circular Road.
In its place, the developer intends to build a four storey apartment building, containing eight apartments, with access from the Circular Road.
The front bar area of the former Sportsman’s Inn on the ground flood will not be demolished, but instead converted to a commercial unit.
It is also proposed to add a second storey extension to this area, to use an an apartment along with the converted first floor.
The two shops next to the former pub would be amalgamated into one larger retail unit under the plans, and alterations will be made to the apartments on the upper floors.
A decision is due from Galway County Council on this planning application by September 23.
