Proposed Variation No. 2 of the Mayo County Development Plan 2008-2014


Proposed Variation No. 2


Mayo County Development Plan 2008 –2014

Mayo County Council proposes to vary the Mayo County Development Plan 2008 –2014 (Variation No. 2).

The reason for the proposed variation is to incorporate a Core Strategy into the Plan as required under the Planning and Development (Amendment) Act 2010.

The purpose of the Core Strategy is to set out an evidenced based strategy for the spatial development of the County and to show that the development objectives in the Development Plan are consistent, as far as practicable, with national and regional development objectives in the National Spatial Strategy and the Regional Planning Guidelines for the West Region 2010 – 2022.

Details of the proposed variation are set out in the document entitled Proposed Variation No. 2 of Mayo County Development Plan 2008 – 2014, Display Document. This is accompanied by supporting documentation relating to Strategic Environmental Assessment, Habitat Directive Assessment and Flood Risk Assessment.

The Proposed Variation will be on public display between 14th July and 12th August 2011. Any written submissions or observations made to the Planning Authority with respect to the proposed Variation and received during this period will be taken into consideration before the Variation is made.

All submissions should be in writing, marked “Variation No. 2, Mayo County Development Plan”, and forwarded to:
