Cork County Council sets out its land use planning strategy for the development of the towns and villages of the county in a series of Municipal District Local Area Plans. Cork County Council has prepared a Local Area Plan for each of the eight Municipal Districts which cover the County.
The Local Area Plans for each Municipal District has been prepared following detailed consideration of the submissions and observations received from members of the public and the deliberations of the County Council concerning the plans. The new Local Area Plans were adopted on the 24th July 2017 and came into effect 4 weeks later on 21st August 2017.
It should be noted that these new Local Area Plans do not include the former Town Councils functional areas and will not replace the nine Town Development Plans adopted by the former Town Councils of Cobh, Clonakilty, Fermoy, Kinsale, Macroom, Mallow, Midleton, Skibbereen and Youghal.
The current Town Plans will remain in force until December 2020.
