Background

The purpose of the County Donegal Development Plan 2018-2024 is to set out a land use planning policy framework to guide the way in which County Donegal will be developed into the future. The Plan will be a material consideration in making decisions on planning applications.

It is the first consolidated Plan for the entire functional area of Donegal County Council, including the former Town Council areas of Letterkenny, Buncrana and Bundoran. In this regard, the County Donegal Development Plan, 2018-2024 supersedes not just the County Donegal Development Plan, 2012-2018 (As Varied) but also the following documents:

Letterkenny and Environs Development Plan 2009-2015(As Varied);

The Buncrana and Environs Development Plan 2014-2020; and

The Bundoran and Environs Development Plan 2009-2015 (As Varied)

The County Donegal Development Plan 2018-2024 and Environmental Report has been prepared in accordance with the provisions of the Planning and Development Acts 2000 (As Amended), and the Planning and Development (Strategic Environmental Assessment) Regulations 2004 and the Planning and Development (Strategic Environmental Assessment) (Amendment) Regulations 2011.
