Meath County Council Planning Notice – Part 8


Planning and Development Act 2000 – 2018

Planning and Development Regulations 2001 – 2018

“Part XI of the Planning and Development Act 2000 - 2018

Part Viii of the Planning and Development Regulations 2001 – 2018”



(Athlumney to Trim Road Cycle and Pedestrian Scheme)


In accordance with the above regulations, Meath County Council proposes to carry out development works which consist of 2.9km of segregated cycle and pedestrian facilities, starting at Beechmount Junction on the Trim Road (R161), moving north eastwards to the roundabout at the Solstice Art Centre, then going east onto Circular Road to meet the R147.

From this point, a 2 way cycle track and pedestrian footpath will travel north eastwards on the River Boyne side of the R147, where it will join up with the cycle facilities on the new bridge (currently under construction) to cross the River Boyne and continues out the Kentstown Road to the junction with Convent Lane (approved under a previous Part 8 process).

At Convent Lane, the footpaths will be upgraded and a shared on-road space for cyclists and vehicular traffic will be provided which continues as far as the entrance to St. Michaels, Loreto Secondary School. Thereafter, segregated facilities will be provided for cyclists and pedestrians as far as the railway bridge, at which point, north bound cyclist’s revert to a shared road space facility with one way (north bound) vehicular traffic maintained. This scheme terminates at the top of Convent Lane at the junction with Elm Park.


Construction works along the route will involve the following elements;

  • Construction of new kerb lines for new footpath and/or cycle tracks
  • Earthworks – excavations of portions of existing verges, of existing roadway/footpaths, for service ducts and road crossings
  • Removal of trees, setting back of boundaries, landscaping
  • Construction of footpaths and cycle tracks, road markings and drainage works


The proposed works above will take place in the town of Navan, Co. Meath, in the Townlands of Balreask Old, Limekilnhill, Dillonsland, Townparks and Athlumney.
