Planning and Development Act 2000 (as amended)
PUBLIC CONSULTATION ON THE
DRAFT DEVELOPMENT CONTRIBUTION SCHEME 2018 – 2024
Consultation period: 13 February 2018 to 28 March 2018
Notice is hereby given pursuant to Section 48 of the Planning and Development Act 2000 (as amended) that Sligo County Council has prepared a Draft Development Contribution Scheme.
Section 48 of the Planning & Development Act, 2000, as amended, enables a Planning Authority, when granting planning permission under Section 34 of the Act, to attach conditions requiring the payment of a contribution in respect of public infrastructure and facilities benefiting the development of the administrative area of the Planning Authority. This relates to public infrastructure and facilities that are provided, or that it is intended will be provided, by or on behalf of the Local Authority. Section 48 (2) specifies that the basis for the determination of the contribution shall set out in a Development Contribution Scheme.
When adopted this scheme shall replace all existing schemes in the County and shall therefore apply to the entire County.
Copies of the Draft Development Contribution Scheme are available for public inspection at the Planning Office, Sligo County Council, City Hall, Quay Street, Sligo during office hours (10am – 4pm) from the 13th February 2018 to 28th March 2018, both dates inclusive.

Sligo County Council,
Telephone 071 911 4440
