Fit for purpose: WIT seeks to double car spaces at Arena and sports complex
Waterford Institute of Technology (WIT) is looking to extend the car park at the campus’s arena due to the huge demand for parking at big events.
The WIT Arena at Carriganore on the N25 Ring Road can currently accommodate 188 vehicles, but it wants to expand this to 400 spaces.
An application has been made to Waterford City and County Council seeking to create a new overflow car park to cater for 212 cars at the new site.
The plans also request permission to create a bus set down, site lighting and an access control barrier at the WIT complex.
Submissions from the public on the expansion plans are being accepted until March 22.
A decision from the council on the application is due next month.
