Public urged to make submissions for new Donegal County Development Plan

Donegal County Council has started preparing for a new County Development Plan.

It will cover the period 2024-2030 and will include a local area plan for Bundoran.

Donegal County Council is having a Pre-Draft public consultation process running from this coming Friday until June 3rd.

The new development plan will include objectives and policies, as well as maps, zonings, and various Environmental Reports.

It will also include Local Area Plans for Buncrana and Bundoran and a Settlement Framework Plan for Ballybofey/Stranorlar.

The overall plan will guide future planning and public investment decisions across a wide range of areas, including housing, economic development, climate change, transport infrastructure, and the management of natural and built heritage.

Donegal County Council says the public can help to shape the new development plan by their submissions.
