Proposal to extend the duration of Sligo County Development Plan 2017-2023 by up to one year, to the end of July 2024
Sligo County Council has proposed to extend the duration of the County Development Plan. The current CDP is due to expire in July 2023. To allow for the preparation of the new CDP to be completed in 2024, Sligo County Council has stated it will be necessary to extend the life of the current CDP by up to 12 months until July 2024.
Such an extension will ensure that the zoning and development objectives of the CDP remain in force until the new Plan is adopted. The Planning Authority proposes to extend the duration of the Sligo County Development Plan 2017-2023 by up to one year under the provisions of Section 11D of the Planning and Development Act 2000, as amended (modification to the 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).
Written submissions or observations regarding the Proposed Variation No. 2 may be made to Sligo County Council between Friday 17 February and Friday 17 March 2023.
