  • An Bord Pleanala refuse permission for two different cinema proposals in Navan, Co. Meath

    An Bord Pleanala last week rejected two cinema proposals for Navan, Co. Meath.

    An application for a nine screen cinema off the inner relief road in Navan was refused because of the prominent gateway status of the site in a heritage town and the zoning objective to provide for visitor and tourist facilities with a high-intensity, integrated use. The Board noted that the planning history of this site includes a “coherent mixed use development” incorporating a hotel and comprehensive car parking provision.

    An application for amendments to a permitted cinema as part of a large mixed use development at Navan Retail Park, Athboy Road was also refused permission by An Bord Pleanala.  The Board considered that given the location of the site on the outskirts of the town, in a location that is poorly accessible from the town centre, the development would fail to consolidate the town centre, would fail to deliver any synergies with town centre activities and would have a negative impact on the town centre’s vitality and viability.
