Laois County Council intends to review its existing County Development Plan 2006-2012 and to prepare a new County Development Plan 2012-2018.
The County Development Plan sets a framework for the proper planning and sustainable development of the county over a six-year period. It includes sets of development policies, development objectives, development guidelines/standards in addition to the „zoning‟ of land.
Please note that the County Development Plan sets the overall context for the development of Co. Laois over the period 2012-2018. It will also contain Town Plans for the medium sized towns of Abbeyleix, Mountrath, Rathdowney, Durrow, Stradbally and Village Plans (approximately 25).
Local Area Plans have been adopted for the larger towns of Portlaoise 2006-2012, Portarlington 2007-2013, Mountmellick 2007-2013 and Graiguecullen 2007-2013. These will be reviewed in due course after the new County Development Plan has been adopted.
Submissions or observations regarding the review of the existing County Development Plan and preparation of the New Plan (2012-2018) must be made by Monday 1st March 2010. Please contact bps on 087-2615871 to discuss.
