An appeal has been made against Kerry County Council's decision to grant permission for the development of a glamping facility in Killarney.

The planning application was accepted in October, but was subject to a number of conditions.

The proposed project has since been objected to by a number of parties.

Last March Killarney Glamping of Ballycasheen, sought permission to develop a glamping facility at Killarney racecourse.

The project was given the green light by Kerry County Council - subject to 13 conditions - in October.

A number of separate parties have since lodged objections to An Bord Pleanála.

One of the issues discussed in these appeals is the potential for noise pollution or anti-social behaviour.

Another topic raised was the impact this development would have on the horseshoe bat, a protected species in the area.

A decision on these appeals is due to be made on the 28th of March next.
