Zoning & Development potential
Zoning - The property is zoned as 'Mixed Use' under the Athlone Development Plan 2014 to 2020

- To provide for, protect and strengthen the vitality and viability of town centres, through consolidating development, encouraging a mix of uses and maximising the use of land, to ensure the efficient use of infrastructure and services

Mixed use reflects the mixture of uses which have always co-existed in town centres and which gives them the vitality, variety and intensity of uses which makes them attractive and important places for community interaction. A mixed use zoning provision can also help to ensure the economic efficiency through which public infrastructure and services can be provided. It can attract a critical mass to a central area around which service provision can be focused.

It is a policy of this Development Plan, to sustain and enhance the vitality and viability of town centres and where appropriate to consolidate urban areas. This will be achieved by encouraging a mix of compatible uses within town centres and maximising the use of land to ensure the efficient use of infrastructure and services, through mobilising brownfield and underutilised land for development where appropriate.

Any such development will have regard for the Councils adopted Retail Strategy and policies in relation to the built heritage and building height and density. Development incorporating residential units above ground floor 'active' street frontages such as commercial/retail units, will be encouraged where appropriate, to facilitate activity on the street both during and after office hours.
