MEATH COUNTY COUNCIL is to rejuvenate its county town Navan with a €12 million makeover project, the first part of a plan known as ‘Navan 2030’.

The plan will see the town’s centre given an overhaul which will see it made more pedestrian and cyclist-friendly.

The makeover is to be funded by the county council together with funds from the National Transport Authority.

Local Fianna Fáil TD Shane Cassells has welcomed the plan as a “positive development”.

“It’s positive to see that the plan is now at the point of delivering real change for the people of Navan,” he said.

The plan will ensure that the town is able to cope with increased population in the years ahead and will strengthen economic growth in the area.

I’m glad to see that many of the key concerns of local people have been raising are addressed in this plan, especially around the proposals to make the town more pedestrian and cyclist friendly and to link the historic and modern quarters.

The plans for Navan 2030 are now to go on public display in the town from 8 May.

The project will then go through a six-week public consultation. Assuming this is passed successfully, work is expected to begin next year.
