Melcorpo Commercial Properties Ltd has invited local councillors to a meeting next week to unveil its plans for an entertainment centre in the High Street Mall.

The developer is seeking to meet with members of Kilkenny Borough Council on May 2, as it will need to secure a “change of use” for the building in order to go ahead with the development.

The company’s planning permission for the development was submitted to the Borough Council in April, and a decision date of May 20 has been given by the council.
