Where We Are Now

Carlow County Council has commenced the preparation of a new County Development Plan for the period 2022-2028 in accordance with the steps set out in the Planning and Development Acts. The purpose of the Development Plan is to guide the future development of the county.

Carlow County Council published the Chief Executive’s Report dated October 2020 summarising the submissions received during the Pre-Draft Public Consultation Period (Wednesday the 24th June until Thursday 20th August, 2020 inclusive, now closed), setting out the Chief Executive’s Opinions and Recommendations to be included in the Draft County Development Plan. This report is now available here. This report was considered by the Elected Members at a Special Council Meeting on the 30th November 2020 and Directions were issued regarding the preparation of the Draft Plan.


Next Steps

The Draft County Development Plan will now be prepared taking into account the Directions received and will be made available for public consultation c. June 2021 (at which stage further submissions can be made).
