Notice is hereby given in accordance with Section 11 of the Planning and Development Act 2000 (as amended) that Kildare County Council intends to review the existing Kildare County Development Plan 2017–2023 and to prepare a new Kildare County Development Plan 2023–2029.
The Planning Authority will carry out a Strategic Environmental Assessment (SEA) as part of the review process, and for this purpose, the Planning Authority will prepare an environmental report of the likely significant effects on the environment of implementing the new plan, and the provisions of Articles 13C to 13J of the 2004 SEA Regulations (as amended) shall apply.
An Appropriate Assessment pursuant to Article 6 of the Habitats Directive 92/43/EEC will also be carried out.
To inform the process, an Issues Paper has been prepared which gives a broad overview of some of the main development issues to be addressed in the new plan.
This Issues Paper is available to view at the following locations from Monday 11th January 2021 to Monday 8th March 2021 (inclusive):
