Stage 1 - Preparation of Draft Development Plan
Extension of the Plan-making Process
In accordance with new legislation enacted in July 2021 as set out in the Planning and Development (Amendment) Act 2021 and Section 11D of the Planning and Development Act 2000, as amended, Clare County Council decided by resolution on the 8th November 2021 to extend the duration of the existing Clare County Development Plan 2017-2023 (as varied) up to the 29th April 2023. The extension of the current Plan is necessary in order to ensure it remains in operation until such time as the new Clare County Development Plan comes into effect.
The extension of duration provides for a further period of time of up to 7 months to complete the review of the Clare County Development Plan 2017-2023 (as varied), and to prepare and make a new Clare County Development Plan for the functional area of Clare County Council. The plan period of the new Plan has therefore changed from 2022-2028 to 2023-2029.The reason for the initiation of this process is due to the disruption resulting from restrictions introduced as a result of the Covid-19 Pandemic on the plan preparation process for the making of a new Clare County Development Plan. Further Information on this can be found on the Clare County Council website at: https://www.clarecoco.ie/services/planning/ccdp2017-2023/
A Draft Clare County Development Plan was prepared and was discussed at a Special Meeting of Clare County Council on the 30th November 2021. At this meeting the Draft Clare County Development Plan 2023-2029 was finalised.
Public consultation on the Draft Clare County Development Plan 2023-2029 commenced on the 10th December 2021, commencing Stage 2-Public Display of the Draft Plan of the plan making process.
