Vacant Sites Register
Sligo County Council has established a Vacant Sites Register in accordance with the Urban Regeneration and Housing Act 2015. The purpose of the register is to identify vacant sites within the functional area of Sligo County Council zoned for housing and regeneration purposes and which have been deemed suitable for housing or redevelopment but are lying dormant and undeveloped. Sites entered on the Register will be subject to the Vacant Site Levy provisions introduced under the Act.
At present the Register is empty as the Council is in the process of reviewing the County Development Plan including the incorporation of provisions to inform and enable the identification and inclusion of specific sites on the register. Ongoing survey work is also being carried out so that the planning authority can be satisfied that any sites included on the register in the future have been vacant for the preceding 12 months.
