Update: 1st May 2020
It is the intention of Kilkenny County Council to, on the 11th of May 2020, re-commence the review process of both the existing Kilkenny County Development Plan 2014-2020 and the Kilkenny City and Environs Development Plan 2014-2020 and to prepare a single, consolidated County Development Plan for the period 2021-2027 to replace both the previous County and City and Environs Development Plans.
The next step in the process is the preparation of a draft plan, which, once completed, will be published for public comment in the third quarter (Q3) of 2020. Information on the review to date and the plan's progress is available on our dedicated Development Plan Review website https://ourplan.kilkenny.ie/.

The review process for the preparation of the new Development Plan commenced on the 20th April 2018. In accordance with Section 11(1)(b)(ii) of the Planning and Development Act 2000 (as amended), Kilkenny County Council suspended the review of the Kilkenny City & County Development Plan with effect from the 23rd of November 2018, pending the making of the Regional Spatial and Economic Strategy (RSES) for the Southern Region by the Regional Assembly. The Members of the Regional Assembly approved the RSES to be made on 31st of January 2020.
The process will resume shortly, at the stage it was at prior to suspension. The exact date to recommence is yet to be confirmed, however a Draft City & County Development Plan will be put on public display in Q3 2020, and submissions will be invited at that stage. Details of the review to date are available on our dedicated Development Plan website: https://ourplan.kilkenny.ie/ and to keep up to date with the review, register your interest at https://consult.kilkenny.ie/. We will issue alerts to all registered users with any updates.
