Anex to Tralee building is delisted by Town Council.

An annex to a Georgian building on Denny Street in Tralee has been de listed by the council paving the way for planning for apartments to be submitted. An Taisce had objected to the delisting, however when put to a vote 10 member`s of Tralee Town Council supported the move to take it from the record of protected structures. The house itself 18 Denny Street will remain protected. This proposal came before Tralee Town Council last month but was deferred pending a full planning report. The owners of the building Ned and James O Shea arranged for an architects assessment to be sent to each member of the council. The report found the annex was constructed as an outhouse to number 18 and is devoid of any features of architectural quality.It went on to say that it’s devoid of any historic significance and demolition will not lead to any consequential loss. The report also put forward the case that the annex was listed accidentally and it was never the intention of the planners to have it as a protected structure. When put to a vote Cllr Tommy Foley was the sole opponent to the plan to delist. Planning for a 2 and a half million euro apartment complex on the site will now be submitted.
