The entire of the site is currently zoned Town Centre under the Westport & Environs Local Development Plan (2010-2016 as amended). The stated objective of this zoning is:-

"The objective of the Town Centre land use is to provide for and improve commercial and other town centre activities and to preserve and enhance the civic and town centre character of the town. Town Centre land use shall provide for and improve commercial and other town centre activities. In the pursuit of this, a major consideration will be the protection of the character of the existing town centre. The town centre includes many land uses. The uses generally permitted within this area are shops, supermarkets, offices, houses/apartments, public buildings/assembly, open space, hotels, guest houses, restaurants, public houses, nursing/care homes and parking. The objective governing the area delineated as town centre means that this land use mix will continue".


Given the sites location and attractive Town Centre Zoning, the site offers obvious and significant development potential SPP. The uses could be broad and possibly residential given the surrounding area is largely mature residential. An exclusively residential development would be ideal for the site and highly marketable.


We are inviting offers for the Freehold interest on a Subject to Planning Basis. Further terms and conditions attached to this process are available on request.
