Cork City Council seeks your views on the development of the Council
Cork City Council has launched an online survey inviting the public, communities, business, educational institutions and our wider stakeholder partners to have their say on how they would like Cork City Council to progress over the next five years. The survey will inform the process which will develop the Council’s Corporate Plan 2019-2024.
Director of Corporate Affairs and International Relations, Paul Moynihan said: “This online survey provides the opportunity for the public to tell us what matters to them and to have a say in the new city council’s vision, mission, goals and values".
“This Corporate Plan will set out the City Council's vision for the next five years in key areas such as housing, community development, sustainable and economic development, the climate change agenda, the fostering of culture and social inclusion and the delivery of improved transport in our city," he added.
Cork City has undergone significant change in recent years. On Friday 31st May, 2019 the city increased fivefold in size and welcomed 85,000 new residents. The ‘new Cork city’ includes Ballincollig, Glanmire, Douglas, Frankfield, Rochestown, Grange, Blarney, Tower and Whites Cross. Furthermore, under the National Planning Framework, Cork is earmarked to be the fastest growing city in the country over the next 20 years. This will put in place rich opportunities for economic, social and cultural development.
