The lands are located in an area zoned �Objective K1' Commercial under the Kildare Town Local Area Plan 2012 2018. Under this zoning objective the lands are outlined 'to protect and improve existing commercial uses and provide for additional compatible uses'.
The purpose of this zoning is to reflect the established mix of commercial and residential uses which have developed historically in Kildare. Any new development in this zone must not prejudice the viability of established land uses within the zone. In this zone it is important to avoid abrupt transitions in scale and use at the boundary of adjoining land use zones and also to avoid developments that would be detrimental to amenity. (Commercial lands have been phased, K1- phase 1, K2 Phase 2)
The purpose of lands zoned K1*, to the west of the town centre, is to facilitate the expansion of the Kildare Retail Outlet in accordance with the Design Brief set out in Section 7.6 of this plan. Any development on these lands shall provide significantly enhanced high quality linkages between the retail outlet and the historic town centre and shall increase synergy with the town centre. Any expansion will be required to meet the tests of the Regional Planning Guidelines, 2008 GDA Retail Strategy and the County Retail Strategy assessment criteria, particularly in respect of retail and cumulative impact
