Following a Special Plenary Meeting of Roscommon County Council on the 7th April 2021, the Draft Roscommon County Development Plan 2021-2027 has been finalised.
The Draft County Development Plan has been prepared in line with the principles of the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals, the National Planning Framework and the Regional Spatial Economic Strategies, and in accordance with S. 28 Ministerial Guidelines. It consists of the written statement and maps which set out the local level strategic direction for the development of County Roscommon across a wide range of policy areas.
The Draft Plan was well received and broadly welcomed by Elected Members and will be published on the 21st April 2021. Both the Elected Members and the Executive of Roscommon Count Council have encouraged and invited all members of the public to get involved in the Plan preparation process by reading the Draft Plan and making a submission.
The Forward Planning Team would like to thank everyone who got involved in the pre-Draft stage of the process and all those who made submissions and attended the drop in clinics. The input from Elected Members was also central to the preparation of the Draft Plan and their involvement in workshops and webinars throughout the process was of great benefit. A special thanks also goes to all the children who took part on our Art Competition.
Public consultation will begin on the 21st of April for a minimum of 10 weeks.
