Gemini Irish Healthcare Services has applied for planning permission for a medical clinic and sheltered housing scheme on lands next to Ardnacassagh House in Co Longford.
The three-storey clinic, on land which is currently zoned residential/commercial, would include three operating theatres, 24 recovery rooms, 13 diagnostic suites and a postoperative convalescent care wing with 40 long-term bedrooms.
The application also includes a pharmacy and retail medical centre and a beauty salon.
The residential development would consist of 43 single-storey terraced houses for ‘‘semi-independent living’’, including 12 two-bedroom houses. There will also be a community centre and landscaping to include children’s playgrounds and water features.
Separately, Patrick Mollaghan Homes has applied for planning permission for a residential development of 126 detached, semi-detached and terraced houses on adjoining land.
