Notice of Proposed Material Alterations to Draft Variation No. 1 of the Cavan Town and Environs Development Plan 2014-2020

Published on: 18 Oct 2018

Notice is hereby given that the Elected Members of Cavan County Council, having considered Proposed Variation No. 1 of the Cavan Town and Environs Development Plan 2014-2020 and the Chief Executive’s Report in accordance with Section 13 of the Planning and Development Act 2000 as amended, have resolved that the Proposed Variation of the Cavan Town and Environs Development Plan be altered. The proposed modifications constitute a Material Alteration of the draft Variation No.1 of the Cavan Town and Environs Development Plan 2014-2020.

The likely significant effects on the environment of implementing the proposed material alterations have been assessed. The Planning Authority has determined that neither the Strategic Environmental Assessment nor the Appropriate Assessment is required to be carried out with respect to the proposed material alterations.

The Proposed Variation No. 1 is to comply with legislative requirements and incorporate the provisions of the Urban Regeneration and Housing Act 2015, regarding the vacant site levy and urban renewal and regeneration into the Cavan Town and Environs Development Plan 2014-2020, thereby encouraging the regeneration and development of the town and environs. The Variation also intends to include additional phased lands as per currently zoned, as lands that may permit residential development, (as well as Phase 1 lands), to ensure there is adequate zoning provision for housing development of the town and thus enable the town to meet the objectives of the Core Strategy of the Cavan Town and Environs Development Plan 2014-2020. The Material Alterations proposed in respect of the above Variation No. 1 can be viewed at locations outlined below.

 

The Variation will be referred to as Variation No. 1 of the Cavan Town and Environs Development Plan 2014-2020.
