Plans lodged for the development of the former Rochestown Inn

NEW plans have been lodged with Cork City Council for the development of the site of the former Rochestown Inn.

The proposals also include five car parking spaces and 46 bicycle parking facilities.

The planning application includes a request to demolish the derelict Rochestown Inn and adjacent house and to build a new structure which ranges from two to four storeys in height which will also include one private office space.

Fine Gael councillor Deirdre Forde said: “Any planning application that is progressive for Cork city is to be welcomed. Obviously, any planning application must be closely scrutinised to ensure that it is beneficial to the area and doesn’t impact on quality of life for residents and is in line with the City Development Plan. If anybody has reservations or otherwise, they can make a submission to the planning application.” 

A proposal to redevelop the former Rochestown Inn was rejected by Cork City Council in early 2021.

The former Rochestown Inn has been closed for a number of years after a serious fire gutted the premises.
