Proposed Cork City Development Plan 2022-2028

Cork City Council has started the preparation of a new  Cork City Development Plan 2022-2028. This is a 2-year process, which evolves through various stages in line with Planning and Development legislation.

We have prepared a consultation document ‘Our City - Our Future’ to stimulate debate on strategic issues to be considered in the new plan. These issues include climate change, social inclusion, transport, housing, economy, health, culture, heritage, education and biodiversity loss. Ultimately, what do we want our city to be? In terms of development, what should our priorities be?

The process is explained within the Process Overview document which can be found within the documents link below along with other supporting documents including the Socio-Economic Summary ProfileSubmissions leafletand  Statutory Notice of Preliminary Consultation. The Development Plan is primarily a land use document which deals with associated issues which impact our way of life, work, travel, experience and enjoyment of our City.

This public consultation period is from 26th June 2020 until 21st August 2020. Submissions and observations are welcome from all ages and abilities on the Cork City Development Plan and preparation of the Draft City Development Plan.

The new City Development Plan will replace the current City Development Plan 2015-2021 and Cork County Development Plan 2014and Municipal District Local Area Plans 2017 (solely for the former County Council areas now within the Cork City boundary including Ballincollig, Blarney, Glanmire and Tower).

A number of consultation events will be held during the consultation period. These will include webinars, a public opinion survey, and the young people’s photographic competition. Details of these events will be available at and in the media
