Plans for a cinema at MacDonagh Junction shopping centre have been resubmitted to Kilkenny Borough Council.
The initial planning application including a six-screen, 1,004-seat multiplex cinema building was deemed to be incomplete when it was submitted last month, but a new application has now been made.
It seeks permission to construct the cinema on the site of the former disused MacDonagh Railway Station/ Terminus Platform, a protected structure, on the southern edge of the MacDonagh Junction Goods’ Shed Square.
The development is proposed to consist of the demolition/ removal of all existing structures on-site, including the colonnade wall currently forming the boundary separation between Goods’ Shed Square and the railway, the disused railway tracks, the former railway bridged/pedestrian underpass; the dismantling of the McDonagh Railway Station Platform (a protected structure), allowing for the restoration, re-use and relocation of the platform’s cast iron columns and arched beams within Goods’ Shed Square.
A decision is due on May 23, according to the council.
