Limerick City and County Council published the Draft Development Plan on the 26th of June 2021. The Plan sets out an overall strategy for the proper planning and sustainable development of the functional area of Limerick over a six-year period between 2022 and 2028.
The Draft Plan, the first consolidated plan for Limerick City and County will replace the existing Limerick City Development Plan 2010-2016 (as extended) and Limerick County Development Plan 2010-2016 (as extended).
