NEW: Public consultation on the
Proposed Variation No. 2 of Sligo County Development Plan 2017-2023
From 17 February to 17 March 2023
Proposal to extend the duration of Sligo County Development Plan 2017-2023 by up to one year, to the end of July 2024
The current CDP is due to expire in July 2023. In order to allow for the preparation of the new CDP to be completed in 2024, it will be necessary to extend the life of the current CDP by 12 months, until July 2024.
Such extension will ensure that the zoning and development objectives of the CDP remain in force until the new Plan is adopted.
Pursuant to the Planning and Development (Amendment) Act 2021, The Planning Authority proposes to extend the duration of the Sligo County Development Plan 2017-2023 by one year under the provisions of Section 11D of the Planning and Development Act 2000, as amended (modification to operation of sections 11 and 11B of Act of 2000 having regard to Covid-19 disruption). This may be achieved by means of a Development Plan Variation (Variation No. 2).
How to make a submission
Written submissions or observations regarding the Proposed Variation No. 2 may be made via Sligo County Council’s Consultation Portal at consult.sligococo.ie between Friday 17 February and Friday 17 March 2023.
