Letterkenny Planning for Growth - Take part in planning for the growth of Letterkenny



Letterkenny  -  Planning for growth


Initial consultation period now closed.


Donegal County Council intends to prepare a Draft Plan in respect of Letterkenny under the provisions for Local Area Plans contained in section 20 of the Planning and Development Act 2000 (as amended).


The initial consultation period to inform the plan is now closed. The Council would like to thank all of those who participated in the consultation events and who contributed to the broader consultation process. All of the feedback will help to inform the plan and add value to the process.


The next steps are that a report is being prepared to collate the outputs of the range of consultation exercises. The report will identify the key emerging themes and recommend the strategic direction of the Plan. When complete, the report will be made available on the Councils website.


The ambition within which the Plan for Letterkenny is being prepared is that the town will grow its population to +35,000 people and it will offer all the ingredients of a future city including employment, housing choice, high quality of life, a vibrant town centre, community and social amenities and positive public and civic space.


This project is a County wide and regionally significant piece of work. It is reinforced by the identification of Letterkenny as a regional centre in the Government’s National Planning Framework and it will recognise the strategic role of Letterkenny as part of the North West City Region.


The Plan will contain a suite of policies and objectives supported by land use zoning that will guide the development of Letterkenny. It will also identify and prioritise the essential infrastructure and investment needed to support the planned growth.
