Economic Development Services

Cavan County Council has, as one of its priorities, Economic Development in the County. A combination of infrastructure investment, sustainable and innovative land use zoning policies, inter-agency cooperation and a can-do approach to economic development has improved the attractiveness of County Cavan as a place to invest.

The County has not been immune to the affects of the global and national economic downturn. Unemployment has risen significantly and many businesses face a considerable challenge in sustaining their profitability and levels of employment. Thus, it is incumbent on Cavan County Council, along with the partner development agencies, to continue to focus on the economic development of the County.

Working in partnership with key stakeholders

We recognise the role of co-operation and co-ordination in maximising the potential of Cavan as a business location. Engaging with key stakeholders such as the IDA, Enterprise Ireland, Cavan Local Enterprise Office, local Chambers of Commerce and other interested parties is a key objective of Cavan County Council .
