Shannon Plan Zones Landbank for Aviation Business

Shannon Plan Zones Landbank for Aviation Business

Clare County Council will launch the first ever stand-alone town plan for Shannon at Shannon Airport on Monday 10th December. The launch of the Shannon Town and Environs Local Area Plan 2012 – 2018 coincides with the impending separation of Shannon Airport from the Dublin Airport Authority.

The Plan zones for aviation sector use an 810-hectare (2,000-acre) landbank adjacent to the airport, which was originally set out as a key objective of the Clare County Development Plan 2011 – 2017.

Tom Coughlan, Clare County Manager, said: “This new Plan, which came into effect on 8th October, further underlines the Council’s longstanding vision for the development and expansion of Shannon Airport. The Council is exercising leadership to achieve this vision through the zoning of lands, which is a key requirement for the future expansion of services at the airport. In doing so, we have worked very closely with the airport authority and other agencies.

“Appropriate potential uses for the Airport Zoned Lands include airport operational activities and uses complementary to the operation of the airport, aircraft maintenance/cargo handling facilities, business park use primarily related to airport servicing, management and maintenance activities, long-term aircraft maintenance, air-freight cargo handling facilities and other innovative initiatives.

“The Airport must continue to maximise its competitive advantages and must remain innovative and forward thinking. The Shannon Local Area Plan 2012 – 2018 seeks to ensure the growth and development of Shannon Airport and to harness its full potential, in line with national, regional and county development policy.”
