Dun Laoghaire will get a new 'boat engine showroom' if planning permission is granted at a West Pier site in the Harbour.

According to a planning application received by Dun Laoghaire Rathdown County Council, applicant Pod Marine Ltd is seeking planning permission and retention permission for the development of a site at West Pier Road, Dun Laoghaire at an area known locally as 'The Gut'.

The application seeks permission for the proposed construction of a single story building (c 345sqm) for a boat engine showroom, storage and workshop at ground level and office space at mezzanine level.

According to its website, POD Marine was "established in response to the growing demand for a specialised and professional boat engine maintenance service in Dun Laoghaire, Co. Dublin, Ireland’s largest marina. POD Marine has Volvo Penta’s seal of approval as Dublin’s only authorised Volvo Penta Service Dealer for Marine Leisure & Commercial Products".
