Bailieborough Town Centre First Masterplan - Public Consultation

Public Consultation on Bailieborough Town Centre First Masterplan to commence next week

Cavan County Council is holding a public consultation in relation to the development of a Town Centre First Masterplan for Bailieborough, on Tuesday 30th May at 7.30pm in the Bailie Hotel. This initial consultation will form part of wider engagement with the local community to get their views on the future development of the town.

Bailieborough is one of 26 towns across the country that has received funding under the National Town Centre First policy to develop a Town Centre First Masterplan, which aims to map out future development, focus on tackling dereliction and vacant properties and make our towns more attractive places to live work, socialise and run a business.

A team of consultants, led by Frank Cooney, Cooney Architects, have been commissioned by Cavan County Council to work in collaboration with the local people, businesses, and community groups to develop a masterplan that will shape the future development of the town.

Town Regeneration Officer with Cavan County Council, Caroline Brady, said that this first phase of the public consultation presented local communities and local businesses with a prime opportunity to shape their masterplan and their town’s future.

"As Town Regeneration Officer I am here to support the local community in Bailieborough to take action to further develop and regenerate their town. I would encourage people to engage and participate in the consultation process to have their views heard. By working together, we can ensure that Bailieborough thrives and can make the most of funding opportunities going forward," said Ms Brady.

While the initial consultation will take place on 30th May, there will be further opportunities to participate in the consultation process, both online and in person over the coming weeks – details of which will be widely advertised.
