Wasn't even given an appeal on this.
I've been trying to get this site through and getting a bit sick of the whole system now.the building I'm trying to get passed is a place locally known as the Factory. It is currently owned by McHales Farm Machinery.
The reason for it being know as The Factory is due to the fact it once employed many locals as it was a Wool packing factory for many years. Before this it actually served as the local parish church (even the old statues were in a back room of the building for many years. It was then taken over as a car repair garage as McNamara's, who are a well known family from our local town and who trained many mechanics over the years. It then was Athenry motor centre for acouple of years until being bought by McHales.
McHales are a well known name in Farm Machinery Manufacturing. But they sell mainly through agents with only a handful of direct sales and parts locations.
They hold several open day's nights throughout the year showing of new equipment developments by themselves and other agricultural companies where enthusiasts and the general public are welcome to come and explore.
It is on the history of the site, exploration and it's significance to the local community that I entered it but I made the mistake of using the main sign on my 1st submission (which was the 1st wayspot I've actually entered) it was rejected originally on unsafe access grounds, which to be honest is complete rubbish as the entire site is surrounded by a public footpath which leads to a housing estate located further behind the building itself and children play here safely daily.
The other reason that was given was it is a generic business which I again disagree with as McHales are not a shop in general they are a manufacturer and this is 1 of a very small number of actual sales sites they have.
I appealed this and then got turned down on the fact that I used the main sign which is in the most accessible location because it was a sign.
I was advised to resubmit it which I did using a picture of the actual building instead and a wide angle of the entire area. This time it didn't even get into voting and was immediately rejected as not accepted without any reason or any way to appeal.
Now I am seeing absolutely rubbish wayspots getting through, with no history, nothing behind them (namely the names of every housing estate In certain areas and it is really frustrating to have a site with an interesting history and back story, which is a place to explore if you have an interest in machinery or farming and is culturally significant to the local community and is a well known waypoint if you are arranging to meet someone.
Any advice on how to get this passed would be appreciated. I is along a well used route, as I said earlier, is in a safe location surrounded by a public footpath. Where the stop would be located would be accessible day and night and is in a well lit area.
