On 13 May 2013, following public consultation on the Draft CDP Variation/Strandhill Mini-Plan, Sligo County Council resolved to propose amendments to the Draft Variation/Mini-Plan. Some of these amendments, if made, would represent material alterations of the Draft Variation/Mini-Plan.
The potential environmental effects of the proposed amendments have been assessed. The assessment is presented in the Addendum I to the initial SEA Screening Report dated January 2013 and an updated Natura Impact Report.
The conclusion of the assessment is that the Draft Variation/Mini-Plan, if adopted with the proposed amendments, is likely to have significant effects on the environment.
The proposed amendments of the Draft Variation/Mini-Plan and the associated SEA Addendum and Natura Impact Report are now subject to public consultation for a period of 4 weeks beginning on the 1st August 2013.

Draft CDP Variation No. 1 – Strandhill Mini-Plan
Public Consultation: 22 January – 5 March 2013
Sligo County Council has prepared a Mini-Plan for Strandhill, which it proposes to incorporate in the County Development Plan 2011-2017 (CDP) as a variation. At the same time, it is proposed to revoke the existing Strandhill Local Area Plan.
The reason for the proposed variation is the legal requirement to ensure that the Strandhill plan is consistent with the Core Strategy of the CDP.
The process leading to the adoption of the Mini-Plan will be similar to that for a local area plan, i.e. involving 6 weeks of public consultation on the draft document.
The Draft Mini-Plan consists of a written statement and a set of maps:
