Cork City Council published its Draft City Development Plan in April 2014. Submissions and observations were invited form interested parties up to 17th June 2014. The next step is the preparation of a report by the Chief Executive of the City Council which will be considered by Elected Members of the Council, after which they will decide to make or amend the Plan. A further period of public consultation will occur in late 2014 if material amendments are proposed.
"The vision for Cork City over the period of this Development Plan and beyond is to be a successful, sustainable regional capital and to achieve a high quality of life for its citizens and a robust local economy..."
