St Bridget’s Terrace, Cavan Town, is set for a major revamp.

Major revamp of one of Cavan’s oldest estates

Facelift Redesign for county town’s St Bridget’s Terrace

County Councillors have been briefed on redevelopment plans for one of Cavan Town’s oldest estates.

As far back as late 2018, the local authority has been examining all options available following the completion of a feasibility study carried out at St Brigid's Terrace, hoping to deliver a major revamp of the estate overlooking the R212 Dublin Road passing Kingspan Breffni Park. At the time there were six houses in the area vacant, four of which were not fit for habitation.

The local authority owns 13 houses in total along St Bridget’s Terrace and, in recent years, are understood to have attempted to purchase one or more properties in order to follow through with their overarching plans for redesign and landscaping of the area.

The Part 8 planning proposal, seen by councillors last Monday, May 23, is to redevelop a number of houses along the terrace block as well as the adding to the number of units available within the area.

The council, meanwhile, has strategically acquired several other properties with a view to further potential developments in the area.
