Draft Cork County Development Plan 2021

The Draft Cork County Development Plan 2021 has been published and a public consultation period is currently open. Submissions in relation to the draft plan are invited and will be accepted until midnight on Thursday 1st July 2021 inclusive.

There are two Gaeltacht areas in Cork; Múscraí and Cléire. If you are particularly interested in the proposals that make reference to the Gaeltacht in Cork, please click on this link

The Draft Plan places a strong emphasis on implementation and delivery through Active Land Management processes, placing a particular focus on housing delivery, and in this regard aims to provide certainty to the Government, State Agencies, key stakeholders and the communities of County Cork as to the optimum manner in which the Project Ireland 2040 targets will be achieved. The Draft Plan acknowledges the need to be flexible and adaptive in order to respond to and shape changing circumstances, with the following vision;

“To provide for the development of County Cork as an attractive, competitive and sustainable place to live, visit and do business, where the quality of its economy, natural and built environment, culture and the strength and viability of its rural and urban communities are to the highest standards”

The Draft Plan will consist of 7 Volumes as follows;

  • Volume One: Main Policy Material
  • Volume Two: Heritage and Amenity.
  • Volume Three: North Cork (Fermoy MD and Kanturk Mallow MD).
  • Volume Four: South Cork (Carrigaline MD, Cobh MD, East Cork MD and Macroom MD).
  • Volume Five: West Cork (Bandon Kinsale MD and West Cork MD).
