Windmill planning to open Crescent drop-in centre
A centre for people with intellectual disabilities has applied to Wexford County Council for planning permission to use the ground floor of a former restaurant as an educational resource. Windmill Therapeutic Training Unit Ltd based in Larkin’s Lane off South Main Street is seeking permission for a change of use from a restaurant to an educational service at 1 Crescent Mall, Henrietta Street along with the provision of an accessible entrance.
Architect Neil O’ Keeffe who has lodged the application on behalf of Windmill, informed planner officers that the development stems from a Health Service Executive request for a drop-in facility separate to the standard service provided in Larkin’s Lane.
Windmill therapeutic Training Unit offers day service training and support to adults with mild to moderate intellectual disability and helps people to lead rich lives and to enjoy fulfilling relationships.
The company directors listed on the planning application are Majella Lambert, Ann Barrett, Mary Doyle, Patricia Keane and Bill Kelly.
The former restaurant premises in Crescent Mall is owned by Butlers Newsagency Ltd which has given permission to Windmill to apply for the change of use application.
