Draft County Development Plan 2012 -2018

By: Donegal County Council Home  05/12/2011

A Draft Donegal  County Development Plan 2012-2018 and Environmental Report has been prepared in accordance with the provisions of section 11 of the Planning and Development Acts 2000-2010.

The Manager’s Report on the submissions received during the recent public consultation period is currently being considered by the Councillors with the aim of formally considering the Draft Plan and the Manager’s Report at a Council Meeting in the coming weeks. As yet the precise date for this meeting has not been set. It is likely that additional briefing sessions to facilitate the Councillor’s considerations will be held before Christmas with the formal meeting early in January 2012.

Any proposed material alterations that are recommended at the formal meeting will be the subject of assessment and a further period of public consultation on those alterations before the Plan is finally adopted.

This period of public consultation will be advertised in the local press in due course and submissions on the material alterations invited for consideration by the Councillors in early Spring 2012. The plan is targeted for adoption by July 2012. 


The Council have carried out an Environmental Assessment under the Planning and Development (Strategic Environmental Assessment) Regulations 2004 resulting in an environmental report (that accompanies the draft plan) of the likely significant effects on the environment of implementing the draft plan.
