Cavan County Council has issued a Part 8 planning notice for a proposed six-kilometre public walkway around Ballyhaise village and nearby Oakwood Forest.
The plans have been backed by both Coillte and Teagasc, who own lands that are connected to the project.
Funding of €200,000 was recently allocated to the Ballyhaise River and Forest Trail under the Outdoor Recreation Infrastructure Scheme.
The proposal includes the formation of a new riverside walk along the Annalee, as well as upgrades to the existing trail through Oakwood
Forest and upgrades to the existing Amenity carpark and footpaths.
Coillte says there are plans to "further link this site with the local agricultural college" while Teagasc says it will "facilitate this proposal by way of whatever legal agreement is required".
Plans and particulars of the proposed development can be downloaded on the Cavan County Council website.
They can also be inspected or purchased during public opening hours at the Planning Office in Cavan Town and at the Bailieborough - Cootehill MD Office up to, and including, the 21st of January 2022.
Submissions or observations can be made in writing to the Forward Planning Section up to 4 pm on the 4th of February, 2022.
