Under judicial review: plans for the proposed Horizon Mall in Limerick
REPRESENTATIVES of developer Suneil Sharma, who is looking to build a huge shopping centre on the edge of Limerick, are expected to give evidence in the High Court tomorrow.

REPRESENTATIVES of developer Suneil Sharma, who is looking to build a huge shopping centre on the edge of Limerick, are expected to give evidence in the High Court tomorrow.

Legal representatives of the Crescent Shopping Centre took a case against An Bord Pleanala over the permission given to the plans.

While they gave evidence in the High Court on Wednesday, An Bord Pleanala made its submissions on Friday, before the case wound up for the weekend.

It will continue at 11 o’clock tomorrow in court room 14 in what is expected to be the final day.

Later Justice Caroline Costello will give a written verdict.

Although the local authority refused Mr Sharma’s planning application for a 63,712 squared metres shopping centre, An Bord Pleanala overturned this.

If it goes ahead, it will include 37 small units and two anchor tenants, including Marks & Spencer’s first Limerick store.
