Dublin West TD and Minister for Social Protection Leo Varadkar has said he is disappointed that Fingal County Council has granted planning permission for a new Lidl supermarket in Castleknock village, which is strongly opposed by many local residents.
“I’m disappointed by the council’s decision to grant permission for this new supermarket in Castleknock Village. It’s a pity that the council did not take into account the strong opposition among the local community to this development.
“I will now consult with residents to get their views. If a decision is taken to appeal this to An Bord Pleanála then I will certainly support it.”
