Our Plan for Limerick
Limerick City and County Council is commencing the preparation of the Limerick Development Plan 2022-2028.
The Limerick Development Plan will be the first combined plan for Limerick City and County since the merger of the two local authorities in 2014. The legal basis, function and adoption process for Development Plans is set out in the Planning and Development Act 2000 (amended).
The preparation of the Limerick Development Plan is one of the most important functions of the council acting as the blueprint for the development of Limerick from a physical, economic, social and environmental viewpoint.
The process includes a review of the existing Limerick City Development Plan 2010-2016 (as extended) and the Limerick County Development Plan 2010-2016 (as extended) and will set out the overall strategy for the proper planning and sustainable development of Limerick as a whole over a six year period up to 2028.
The Development Plan review has come at a challenging and unprecedented time where the recovery of our economy, rebuilding of our society, renewing of our communities and responding to the wide ranging challenges we now face, is critical for our county and indeed our country post the Covid-19 pandemic.
