Cork City Docks Local Area Plan: Stage 1 Pre-Plan Consultation

Closeddate_range29 May, 2017, 2:25pm - 7 Jul, 2017, 1:00pm

Cork City Council is preparing statutory Local Area Plans (LAPs) for the Cork City Docks and Tivoli Docks. The Council made the commitment to prepare LAPs for these Key Development Areas in the Cork City Development Plan 2015 - 2021. The Cork City Docks LAP will replace the South Docks Local Area Plan 2008 and the expired North Docks Local Area Plan 2005. The Tivoli Docks LAP will be a new plan.

As a first step, the City Council is undertaking a Stage One Pre-plan consultation to explore relevant issues and invites all stakeholders and interested parties to identify the issues that they feel need to be addressed in the proposed LAPs and how the areas should be redeveloped.

A Cork City Docks Issues Paper can be viewed on this page. You will also find links to the South Docks LAP 2008, the expired North Docks Local Area Plan 2005 and the Cork Docklands Development Strategy 2001.

Hard copies of the issues paper can be requested by contacting the Planning Policy team by emailing or ringing 021– 492-4086 / 021-492-4757.

A public consultation workshop to promote discussion about the future of the City Docks and Tivoli Docks will be held on Tuesday 20 June 2017 at the Clayton Hotel, Lapp’s Quay, Cork. The workshop will be in the evening between 6pm-9pm but places are limited and should be booked through Cork City Council in advance of the meeting by emailing or ringing 021– 492-4086 / 021-492-4757. Cork City Council aims to ensure a good balance in those participating in the event.

Cork City Council invites written submissions from you to inform the plan-making processes. The deadline for the receipt of submissions is 1.00pm on Friday 7 July 2017.
