Kildare Co Council's planners have refused planning permission for a proposed large-scale Motorway Services Station at Mayfield, Monasterevin.

The development included a two-storey building with Drive-Thru, several restaurants, a shop and meeting rooms.

The proposed complex was due to be located on the opposite side of the M7 link road which leads to the existing Junction 14 Mayfield service station.

The main forecourt was to include 16 fuel pumps with a further four fuel pumps for HGVs.

A two-storey building (1,656 sqm gross floor area) was in the plans and would have included an off-licence area, food court at ground and first floor level to include restaurant/café and communal seating.

Two meeting rooms, toilet and baby changing facilities and storage areas were also in the plans.

Included were 147 car parking spaces, 33  HGV parking spaces, 6  coach parking spaces, 11 motorcycle parking and 9 electric charge points.
