Significant changes to our local area will always involve some form of public consultation: either statutory (legal) or non-statutory. This is your chance to make your views heard, and we encourage everyone to engage and provide submissions.

The Convent Road Filtered Permeability Scheme (click to view more) is open for non-statutory consultation until Friday 23rd July at 5pm.

Navan Cycling Initiative fully supports this scheme, which provides a key link in the Navan cycle network

Please make a submission supporting this scheme. You can do this in one of three ways:

  1. Email –
  2. Online – at the Meath Consultation website (and click ‘Make a Submission’)
  3. In writing – to Administrative Officer, Meath County Council, Transportation Department, Buvinda House, Dublin Road, Navan, Co. Meath C15 Y291

We’ve included a template below, and we encourage you to provide your own views and observations. Here are some benefits of the scheme that you may wish to include:

  • This scheme provides a more direct cycle route from the Athlumney and Johnstown areas to the St. Michael’s Loreto school and the Town Centre
  • This scheme enables children to safely cycle to local schools
  • This scheme provides a “School Zone” around St. Michael’s Loreto which improves safety for children, staff and parents
  • This scheme connects to the Boyne Ramparts walk, via the existing safe cycle path on the Kentstown Road, allowing families to access this amenity more easily, and in a more pleasant and attractive environment
  • The addition of improved lighting and CCTV makes this route safer, especially in winter and at night
