The public consultation process for a review of the Galway County Development Plan got underway this month, and will continue until mid-September.

Galway County Council has this month started preparation work on the 2022-2028, and is taking public submissions related to the first stage until September 1.

In the first stage of preparing this plan, the county council an Issues Paper and video clips on different areas of concern for the public to view and comment on, which can view on the council website here.

The county council is currently taking appointments every Wednesday at County Hall as part of the Issues Paper Consultation.

Public submissions related to the plan can also be made by post to Administrative Officer, CDP Review, Forward Planning Policy Unit, Áras an Chontae, Prospect Hill, Galway or by email to forwardplanning@galwaycoco.ie.

This public consultation will be followed by a report from the Chief Executive on its outcome, followed by directions from members of the county council on the preparation of a draft plan.

“With your active help and guidance, the new Galway County Development Plan can create a more attractive, inclusive, competitive and sustainable County,” a council spokesperson said.

“The new Plan should reflect the needs and ambitions of all communities in the County of Galway, so it is essential that you have your say right from the start.”
