Applegreen Service Areas Ltd, Birdhill, has applied to Tipperary County Council to upgrade the existing off-line motorway service area in order to provide a fast charge electric vehicle hub, compressed natural gas compound and dispenser, drive-thru coffee facility, new signage and all associated site works.

The fast-charge electric vehicle hub involves the conversion of 14 existing car park spaces into fast-charging electric vehicle spaces.

The compressed natural gas compound is a single storey development consisting of a compressor building (19sq.m), covered shelter (29sq.m), cooler, 3m high lighting column and associated ground works all contained with 65m of 2.4m high palisade fence with pedestrian and vehicular entrance points. A new access road to the compound is also proposed.

The drive-thru coffee facillity is a single storey building (204sq.m) containing a beverage area, seating area, toilets and back-of-house area, along with an external enclosed refuse compound, car parking spaces, footpath, drive-thru lane, circulation area, landscaping and entry/exit point.

The proposed new signage consists of signage relating to the proposed drive-thru coffee facility and includes a combination of free-standing signage and signage on the building and height restriction barrier (total area of 30.24sq.m of signage).

The application also includes permission for all associated site development works, including new lighting.
