The Pre-Draft Stage of the Local Area Plan Review Process is made up of three phases:

Issues Paper

The Issues Paper and Submissions link will be posted here soon.

The first step in the Pre-Draft Public Consultation phase is the publication of the Issues Paper and an invitation to make submissions. Submissions will be accepted from members of the public and prescribed stakeholders up until 4.30pm, on 29th July 2022.

The purpose of the pre consultation stage of the Local Area Plan (LAP) making process, is to establish an overall strategy for the proper planning and sustainable development of the LAP town/settlement/area.

It is important to highlight at this stage that proposals for zoning of lands for any purposes cannot be considered at this stage of the LAP process.

The Issues Paper aims to stimulate interest and engagement with the Plan making process. The responses received in the Issues Paper will be assessed by the Forward Planning Department of Roscommon County Council and will inform the preparation of the Draft LAP.
