Nursing Home Beats Planning Appeal

Work is expected to commence soon on a four-block, 105-bed spaces nursing home in Ashbourne, Co Meath.

Although a third party appeal was submitted against the construction of the nursing home at Hunters Lane, Dunreagh Townland, Ashbourne, An Bord Pleanala has dismissed the appeal.

They then granted permission to Eracase Ltd and the Bective Partnership, with conditions, on 15th February.

Block C will consist of nine single bedrooms at ground floor, nine single bedrooms and two double bedrooms at the first floor, all with associated nursing accommodation facilities.
