Cork City Development Plan 2015 – 2021

The City Development Plan is Cork City Council’s main strategic planning policy document and it will guide the future development of the city between now and 2021.

Goal 2 of the Cork City Development Plan

‘ACHIEVE A HIGHER QUALITY OF LIFE, PROMOTE SOCIAL INCLUSION AND MAKE THE CITY AN ATTRACTIVE AND HEALTHY PLACE TO LIVE, WORK, VISIT AND INVEST IN’ acknowledges the key role of Cork as a designated WHO Healthy City can play in supporting this.

The development plan is a strategy document for the City that:

  • Provides a vision for how Cork will be developed and improved with a strong focus on putting the right development in the right locations and ensuring that adequate infrastructure exists to serve it (e.g. transport);
  • Sets out the priorities for managing the city and investment in infrastructure over the plan period;
  • Is a key reference-point in determining planning applications.
