In September 2014, in accordance with Section 28 of the Electoral, Local Government and Planning and Development Act 2013, the Planning Authority proposed not to commence the review of the Limerick County Development Plan 2010 ‐ 2016 and the Limerick City Development Plan 2010 ‐ 2016. Therefore the City and County Development Plans will continue to have effect until a new Development Plan for Limerick City and County is prepared. Section 11B requires that within 12 months of the making of regional planning guidelines that take into account the amalgamation of the administrative areas concerned, i.e. Limerick City and County Council, the preparation of a development plan for its administrative area must commence.
