Mayo County Council, in partnership with the communities of Louisburgh, Belcarra and Mulranny, with the support of The Heritage Council, has prepared Village Design Statements for these villages. A village Design Statement is currently being prepared for Cong.
Village Design Statements rely on input from local communities to:
- identify the local distinctive character of the village and surrounding countryside
- provide design guidance for new development.
