Athlone designated ‘key regional centre’ in Midlands

Thu, Feb 22, 2018


The Government’s National Planning Framework (NPF) has recognised Athlone as a ‘key regional centre’ in the Midlands, but stopped short of attributing city or capital status to the town.

This means that Athlone has been earmarked as an area for key growth in the region, which will lead to increased investment in infrastructure and services in the locality for the next decade and beyond.
