"1. It is considered that the proposed development is generally acceptable in principle; however the planning authority has serious concerns regarding the visual impact of the overall height, scale, proportion, roof pitch and design of the proposed development within the context of the existing streetscape and ground levels of the street. Having regard to the special character of Ballymore Eustace village, the prominent location of the proposed development fronting onto Main Street, the highly visible northern side elevation and the architectural merit of the adjoining structures to the north of the site (NIAH Ref 11820013), it is considered that a revised proposal of a significantly higher architectural quality is required.
