Notice is hereby given pursuant to Section 13 of the Planning and Development Acts, 2000 as amended that Cavan County Council, as the competent authority, has prepared a proposed Variation (No.1) of the Cavan Town and Environs Development Plan 2014-2020.
The Proposed Variation is to comply with legislative requirements and incorporate the provisions of the Urban Regeneration and Housing Act 2015, regarding the vacant site levy and urban renewal and regeneration into the Cavan Town and Environs Development Plan 2014-2020, thereby encouraging the regeneration and development of the town and environs.
The Variation also intends to include Phase 2 and Phase 3 lands as per currently zoned, as lands that may permit residential development, (as well as Phase 1 lands), to ensure there is adequate zoning provision for housing development of the town and thus enable the town to meet the objectives of the Core Strategy of the Cavan Town and Environs Development Plan 2014-2020.
The Proposed Variation has been subject to SEA and AA Screening processes. A copy of the proposed Variation (No. 1) to the Cavan Town and Environs Development Plan 2014-2020 together with the Strategic Environmental Screening Report and the Appropriate Assessment Screening Statement is available for inspection from Thursday, 12 July 2018 to Friday, 24 August 2018 inclusive at
