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.

Following the first stage of public consultation (Issues Paper) held summer 2020, Cork City Council has prepared the Draft Cork City Development Plan 2022-2028. The Draft Plan builds on a series of strategic themes including compact growth, the 15-minute city, climate change, social inclusion, sustainable and active travel, providing homes, economy, health, education, biodiversity, placemaking and sport and recreation.

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


You are welcome to make a submission on any aspect of the Draft Plan. This is your opportunity to influence the key priorities for Our City going forward. This is the second of three 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, next year the adopted 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).
