The Draft Plan and associated documents were on public display from 13 October to 22 December 2023. A total of 211 valid submissions and observations were received during the consultation period.

Proposed Amendments

Notice is hereby given that, having considered the Draft Development Plan and the Second Chief Executive’s Report on submissions and observations relating to the Draft Plan and associated documents, it appeared to the elected members of Sligo County Council that the Draft Plan should be amended. The proposed amendments would, if made, be a material alteration of the Draft Plan.

Environmental assessments
