Located on the Fairyhouse Road and within 1km of Ratoath town centre, the majority of the subject site is zoned residential development under the current Meath Development Plan.
According to it, 1.53 acres are zoned Residential Phase I while 17.55 acres are zoned Residential Phase II (post 2019). The balance of the holding comprises lands that are zoned for 'Open Space' (approx. 0.12 acres), un-zoned lands (approx. 6.22 acres) and lands reserved for the Ratoath Outer Relief Road (approx. 4.31 acres).

Once complete, the new road will link the Fairyhouse Road (R155) with the Ashbourne Road (R125) and enhance the accessibility of the subject lands.
