An Bord Pleanala has postponed making a decision on controversial plans for an Aldi supermarket at the Laytown seafront, on the former Creevalea Nursing Home site.
The board had been due to rule on the appeal by 16th May but has dealyed making a decision and the case will now be decided by 27th June.
The proposed site for the Aldi store is the former Creevalea nursing home.
Meath County Council granted planning permission for the discount supermarket last December despite more than 160 submissions being made against the plans. One of the main concerns raised was the traffic that would be generated if the development went ahead on the narrow road which is already a very busy road with school traffic. Locals were also unhappy about the prospect of a large store like Aldi being built along the seafront in the coastal village.
