Public consultation on regeneration plans for Ballyjamesduff taking place today

A public consultation on the Regeneration and Development Strategy for Ballyjamesduff is taking place this evening.

Members of the public are being encouraged to come forward with ideas for the town or projects they would like to see completed.

It comes as Cavan County Council is continuing its efforts to acquire the derelict Percy French Hotel site with hopes it can be brought back into use for the local community.

The consultation is taking place in the County Museum from 4-7pm this evening but submissions can be made until August 19th.
