As part of the overall Greater Dublin Area (GDA) Cycle Network, Meath County Council is currently looking at proposals for the above areas of Navan.

This scheme is at a consultation stage. This is the first step to engage with the local community and we welcome feedback from the public.

No final decisions have been made on the scheme yet. When the final scheme is designed a statutory consultation period will commence under a Part VIII planning process.

Submissions regarding the above may be emailed to transport@meathcoco.ie or by post to Meath County Council, Transportation Department, County Hall, Railway Street, Navan, Co Meath C15 AW81 on or before 5th December, 2016 and titled Johnstown, Navan Pedestrian and Cycle Improvements.

Feedback from the Johnstown Pedestrian and Cycle Improvements information meeting

Feedback from the Johnstown Pedestrian and Cycle Improvements information meeting this evening at the Ardboyne Hotel.

The proposals are enquiries and not planning applications but they want our feedback. There are readable plans in limited detail about cycle paths in the general area.

All the residents associations affected have the same objections to the connecting routes.

Please can ALL our residents send an email to brian.mcmahon@aecom.com  stating your comments and thoughts about  4 connections into:  Bailis Downs, then Athlumney Abbey and Athlumney Castle.

If you wish to object to the proposals you may choose to copy and paste the following :

“As a resident of Athlumney Wood  I object to the proposal to create any new through routes within my estate in any and all formats. I believe that our safety and security would be greatly reduced by having increased traffic through our quiet estate and it would increase antisocial behaviour. ”

Johnstown Pedestrian and Cycle Improvements

Attention All residents. It is very important!!! Council  proposed 3 pedestrian/cycle routes into Bailis Downs/Athlumney Abbey. Few years ago the fence was built between our estate and Athlumney Abbey to stop traffic through both estates. There will be no security at all as there will be more ways in/out from the estate. Please attend the information meeting and STOP that happening!!! Thanks.

All estates need to be on the same page to stop this.

Message from Crime Prevention Officer

Think of ways to have a safe Halloween.

Remove bangers/reworks from your child if you discover them in their possession. Check with your local authority for family-friendly Halloween events and licensed reworks displays taking place in your area.

Educate your child to have respect for older, vulnerable people in the community.

Always be mindful of where your child is during Halloween, where they are going and what time they will be back.

Take responsibility. Ensure that your child does not cause injury to either  themselves or others.
