The County Development Plan 2010-2016 set out overall policies and strategies for the proper planning and sustainable development of Limerick. The legal basis for the plan is set out in the Planning and Development Acts 2000, as amended
In September 2015, 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 County Development Plan 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. The preparation of the Regional Guidelines is due to commence this year. It is expected that the review of the Development Plans will commence by the end of 2016 or early 2017.
