Planning permission has been refused by Galway County Council for a new terminal and other facilities for a company providing boat tours on Killary Fjord.
Connemara Sea-Cruise, which own Killary Fjord Boat Tours, sought planning permission for the construction of a new terminal building at its site at Nancy’s Point outside Leenane.
The new terminal would include a ticket office, a manager’s office, a waiting area, café, kitchen, and toilet facilities.
Wastewater produced at the site would be tankered to a treatment plant operated by Irish Water at Letterfrack.
The county council ultimately rejected the plans on a mixture of road safety, economic, and environmental grounds.
