Westmeath County Council launches community consultation for regenerative Loughanaskin Masterplan

Further to a successful public consultation event hosted in the Athlone Civic Centre on Thursday 26th May 2022 a consultation survey was launched to gauge public opinion and feedback on the Masterplan.

The deadline for the survey has now been closed with 144 respondents. These submissions are currently being reviewed for consideration in the final design process.

The Masterplan proposals presented at the public consultation event, including a ‘fly-through’ video of the scheme are still available to view at www.loughanaskin.ie

The regeneration-led Masterplan incorporates a number of key design components including provision for a new commercial zone that will feature state-of-the-art, flexible and mixed-use commercial office spaces to accommodate a variety of occupiers. A residential zone is also featured within the design concept offering a mix of urban house types to help diversify local housing provision.

Additional features within the Masterplan includes the development of a high quality landing space comprising recreation and amenity space, a distinctive ‘green route’ through the site providing a pedestrian friendly connection between the Town Centre and Old Rail Trail greenway, the development of St Mary’s Gateway which will be a new entrance space to Loughanaskin including community and cultural uses, and a number of active ground floor uses as part of the residential and commercial zones.

This project is funded by Urban Regeneration and Development Fund (URDF) to support sustainable development, as set out in Project Ireland 2040.
