Kildare Co Council has granted permission for a new restaurant in Athy.

A ground floor commercial unit spanning 199 square metres on Woodstock Street, which is a vacant XL shop, will be converted into a family restaurant.

The terms of the planning permission also allow the premises to be used as a takeaway.

Approval has been granted to change the internal layout to provide a toilet, a store, staff area and an office.

A new front sign will also be erected. 

According to Construction Information Service, the estimated total construction value of the project is almost €250,000.
