A family-owned business based in south Kildare has been granted planning permission to extend their operations by constructing a large processing centre at their manufacturing facility.
Natural Oils LTD, which is based in the Grangeford area of Castledermot, have been granted permission to extend their current processing building in a €2.4 investment.
The company develops and distributes sauces and oils to food companies throughout Ireland.
The proposed scheme seeks the retention of storage tanks, containers, plant, office, packing, lab, airlock and bucket store buildings, hardcore yards, access road, concrete yards, landscaping works, concrete wall, palisade fencing, light stands, installation of a waste water treatment system and change of use from agriculture to storage area for food manufacturing and access road.
The development will see the extension to the existing packing building to provide additional packing space, an extension to the existing processing shed to provide a storage shed, a finished product storage building and a barrel storage building.
There will also be the construction of concrete yards, gantry walkways, five car parking spaces, associated landscaping works including palisade fencing and crash barrier and all site development works above and below ground. It is also proposed to provide for a separate vehicular entrance to Bolton Biofuels Ltd, and install a wetland area to the south of the site to treat surface water runoff. The application site is 2.2 hectares.
