Cork County Council is one of the largest Local Authorities in Ireland and covers a significant geographic area. The Council has an annual revenue budget of over €450 million and serves a population of over 350,000 people. The Cork County Development Plan was adopted in 2022 and sets out the Council’s current thinking on planning policy and the overall planning and sustainable development strategy for the county for the period 2022 – 2028. The plan was prepared having regard to the ambitious population and employment targets set out in the National Planning Framework (NPF), the Southern Region Regional Spatial and Economic Strategy (RSES) and Government Policy.

The plan provides an ambitious and balanced vision for the future of the County, planning for population growth and enabling the orderly delivery of housing units and supporting commercial and social services. The plan also sets out to deliver employment led growth by delivering jobs in rural and urban areas. The plan acknowledges the need to be flexible and adaptive in order to respond to, and shape, changing circumstances, and the need to provide for the development of County Cork as an attractive, competitive and sustainable place to live, visit and do business, where the quality of its economy, natural and built environment, culture and the strength and viability of its rural and urban communities are to the highest standards.
