Development Plan Banner 2022-28

Cork City Council has started the preparation of a new Cork City Development Plan 2022-2028. This is a 2-year process, which evolves through various stages in line with Planning and Development Legislation.  Please refer to our Process Overview document for more details on the plan process.

Having considered the Draft City Development Plan and the Chief Executive’s Report on submissions received, it was resolved by the Elected Members of Cork City Council at a Council Meeting on the 15th March 2022, to amend the Draft Cork City Development Plan 2022-2028.

At the meeting, the Council resolved that a number of these amendments constitute a Material Alteration to the Draft Development Plan, and the proposed amendments would be placed on public display for a period of not less than 4 weeks in accordance with Section 12(7)(b) of the Planning and Development Act, 2000 (as amended).

The Draft Cork City Development Plan 2022-2028 is available to view at

You are welcome to make a submission on the Proposed Alterations to the Draft Development Plan. This is the third stage of formal public consultations. Submissions can be made online at

We look forward to hearing your views in shaping the future of Cork City.

For reference, the adopted Cork City Development Plan 2022-2028 will replace the current Cork City Development Plan 2015-2021, and the current Cork County Development Plan 2014 and Cork County Municipal District Local Area Plans 2017 (solely for the former Cork County Council areas now within the Cork City Council boundary, including Ballincollig, Blarney, Glanmire and Tower).
