The new €8.5 million state-of-the-art SuperValu in Bantry was opened to great acclaim in December 2017. Overlooking the picturesque Bantry Bay, including new marina, the 16,700 sq.ft store at Harbour View has greatly expanded the quality of shopping services and facilities locally.
In December 2015, the HW Planning team succeeded in obtaining a formal variation to the Bantry Electoral Area Local Area Plan 2011 to allow for the development of a convenience supermarket at this location. The subsequent application to develop the site, advanced with Daly Barry & Associates, was underpinned by a robust Retail Impact Assessment comprising a quantitative analysis of current retail capacity, modelled future requirements, as well as detailed sequential testing of relevant development site options in Bantry. After securing a grant of planning permission from Cork County Council, the proposal was successfully defended following a Third-Party appeal to An Bord Pleanála.Back
