Abbeylands Cavan Masterplan

Cavan County Council is commencing the preparation of a Masterplan for the Abbeylands area of Cavan Town, including Main Street, Bridge Street, Abbey Street, Farnham Street, Market Square, Townhall Street and all lands to the rear.

The purpose of the Masterplan is to identify and prioritise a scheme of works to redevelop and rejuvenate this historic area in the town centre.

Project Objectives

  • To work in collaboration with key stakeholders in Cavan Town centre to undertake a structured scheme of works to redevelop a significant area of backlands in the town core of the County town, with the purpose of rejuvenating the town core, which has been in decline in recent years
  • To develop and implement a scheme of works to create a public and civic space in the town core with the Abbeylands site as its core and create the first pedestrianised area in the town.
  • To create a sustainable master plan leading to meaningful development in the Town Centre.
