Game changing digital hub in Ballina gets planning nod

Fri, Apr 19, 2019

Part Eight planning permission was granted by the elected members of the Ballina Municipal District for a potentially game changing digital hub in the old Military Barracks in the heart of the town on Wednesday.

Ballina was selected last year for a €3.2 million investment into this project under the Urban Regeneration and Development Fund (URDF) and the approval of planning permission is the next step towards getting this project up and running.

Manager of the Municipal District, Declan Turnbull, told the members that the project was a "major investment in the town and will regenerate a whole area in the town centre". Once planning permission was approved the council would move on with the tender process, which could see construction starting on site by the end of the year.
