Cavan County Council held a public consultation evening in the Virginia Show Centre on the 20th February 2020, which provided valuable feedback and insight in relation to the Virginia Town Safety and Pavement scheme.
This consultation evening was very well-attended and many submissions were received from business owners and residents of Virginia town.
Taking on board the feedback and submissions we received, Cavan County Council has reviewed and altered the design to incorporate, where possible, the views of the community.
The revised drawings are available to view at the links below:
The substantial changes that can be seen from the drawings include moving the Dublin bound bus stop location to outside the courthouse and the creation of additional car parking at the Ballyjamesduff junction, close to the Mason’s Apron.
The relocation of the Dublin bound bus stop allows for the restoration of parking at its present location. In relocating the bus stop Cavan County Council has taken on board the views and proposals detailed in the submissions received.
Cavan County Council acknowledges that there may still be elements which are not to the approval of all; however we have endeavoured at all times to work collaboratively with the community to create a design which best fulfils the many present and future needs of our town of Virginia.
There will be a period of consultation before a formal Part VIII planning application is submitted, at which point there will be a further period of public consultation.
Any person wishing to submit a submission on the revised design can do so by post to the address below before Friday, 8 May.
