Planning permission to be granted for Kilcar factory

Donegal County Council.

Donegal County Council.

DONEGAL County Council said it intends to grant planning permission for a new seaweed cosmetics factory near Kilcar.
Mr Michael McCloskey, owner of Algaran Teo in Cill Chathasaigh, Kilcar, had applied to build the facility beside the house where the current operation is located.
Currently, five people work in the factory, which makes cosmetics from seaweed harvested locally. The application also includes the ‘retention’ of the use of a house for part of the business.
An objection had been lodged by the environmental group, An Taisce, partly because employees would have to use their cars to get to work, resulting in damage to the environment.
