Planning wanted for 69 Athlone homes

Planning permission is being sought for 69 homes to be developed in Athlone.

Ardent Lakeside Property, with an address at Fry Place in Athlone, wants to build the large residential development at Lower Road and Bower Lane, near Retreat.

It would include five blocks of 23 two-storey duplexes over 18 apartments, along with 28 terrace houses in five blocks.


Westmeath County Council is due to decide whether to give the project the go-ahead by June 15th.

The mayor of Athlone, John Dolan, thinks the development is needed because of a housing shortage in the town.
