Development Plans – Extension of Lifetime
On 1st June 2014 Waterford City & County Council was established following the amalgamation of Waterford City Council and Waterford County Council. The three existing development plans within the amalgamated Council area, Waterford City Development Plan 2013 – 2019, Waterford County Development Plan 2011 – 2017, & the Dungarvan Town Development Plan 2012 – 2018, will have their lifetime extended, as per Section 11A of the Planning & Development Act 2000 (as amended) and will remain in effect until the new Regional Spatial & Economic Strategy is made by the Southern Regional Assembly, and thereafter a new City and County Development Plan will be prepared. Please see the Forward Planning section of this website for further information.
