(Download Kilmacthomas Map (adobe .pdf, 716 kbs) Here) and also download the pages relating to Zoning Objectives (word .doc, 183 kbs) . The Zoning Objectives and Landuse Zoning Matrix need to be used when looking at the individual settlement zonings.
Water supply is limited, but has recently been augmented from a borewell drilled in the Respond Housing site. A proposal for upgrading the Kilmacthomas Water Supply, has been included in the Government's Water Services Investment Programme, as a scheme approved to enter the Planning Stage. Other difficulties are contamination of sources, difficulty in water source identification, and storage capacity.
The development boundary is illustrated on the attached Map. The area to the north of Kilmacthomas at Kilnagrange Bridge is zoned industrial (Flahavan's Mills) and the Union Buildings and adjoining land has been zoned for additional industrial use to facilitate start-up industry, this will allow further expansion of this function in the area. The low-lying area between the west and east of the town is zoned as open space. This will ensure that the land will remain undeveloped and available for fyrture recreational use
There are large amounts of land available for development to the south west of the town, which are zoned for residential use. The constraints to development are associated with the infrastructural deficit as outlined above, and development proposals will need to cater for this in any applications for permission along with satisfying the Planning Authority as to the standards for new development at Section 9.2.
Any development of the Light Industrial zoned lands to the south of Kilmacthomas at Graigeshoneen, will be subject to the following limitations: height shall be conventional 1-storey; indoor fabrication only, excluding ironworks or other development that would negatively impact on residential amenity of adjoining lands; heavy screening (vegetation) will be required.
