Planning sought for new residential development at Robinstown

An application for a three-story apartment building at Robinstown has been submitted to Westmeath County Council by BFJ Developments Limited of Carrickmacross, County Monaghan.

The building is to contain 38 units; 26 two-bed apartments and 12 one-bed. Four one-beds are to be transferred to the council under Part V obligation.

Coralstown Kinnegad GAA were refused permission for an extension of duration to extend the clubhouse. The additions included a sports hall with stage, four dressing rooms, toilets, two meeting rooms, and gym. The grounds for the refusal were that the local authority was not satisfied that development works have commenced on site.

“Furthermore, substantial works were not carried out on this site in accordance with the requirements of Section 42 of the Planning and Development Act 2000 (as amended),” the refusal notice stated.
