Tinvane Retail Business Park was at the centre of a long running and acrimonious controversy in Carrick-on-Suir at the end of the last decade.

Tinvane Retail Business Park was at the centre of a long running and acrimonious controversy in Carrick-on-Suir at the end of the last decade.

Retail chain Heatons was prevented from opening a store there because the zoning of the site only permitted retail businesses selling bulky goods like furniture. In 2010, the Town Council rezoned two of the park’s units from “retail warehousing” to “comparison retailing” to make it possible for stores selling household goods, clothing, footwear and stationery to set up shop there.
