Meath County Council Offices are currently located in a number of buildings at various locations in Navan with the main offices in Railway Street just south of Navan Town Centre. The existing building no longer provides a suitable environment for either staff or the public; there is insufficient office and car parking space available. Navan Town Council offices are housed on a separate, very confined, site within walking distance of the town centre. Both the Town and County Councils intend to vacate their existing premises and for a new building to be constructed on the Blackwater River site that will accommodate both Councils. In order to offset some of the costs associated with the construction of their new offices, the Council wish to make available on the site land that will be used by others for the construction of one or more other buildings.

The County Council is therefore now asking for indicative master planning proposals for the development of the site and for design proposals for the Council building in a two stage architectural competition. The master plan should demonstrate the competitor’s overall vision for the site and show how the three dimensional form of the Council and other building(s) relate to their setting. With the exception of the Council building, the type, location and scale of the proposed building(s) are for competitors to decide so long as they comply with the zoning and parameters specified in the Navan Development Plan and the Area Action Plan.
