Cork City has undergone significant changes over the past number of years. On Friday 31st May, 2019, the city increased fivefold in size and welcomed 85,000 new residents. The ‘new Cork City’ now also includes the city suburbs, Ballincollig, Glanmire, Douglas, Frankfield, Rochestown, Grange, Blarney, Tower and Whites Cross. Further information on the boundary extension can be found on our website.
Furthermore, under the National Planning Framework, Cork is earmarked to be the fastest growing city in the country over the next 20 years. This will put in place rich opportunities for economic, social and cultural development.
The Cork City Council Corporate Plan 2019-2024 will set out the City Council's vision for the next five years highlighting a number of objectives and goals, for example, social inclusion, sustainable and economic development, transport, housing, community growth, environment and climate issues, amongst others. This is a great opportunity for us to work together and for you to have a say in identifying a vision, mission, goals and values for our new City.
Please work with us by participating in this public survey to help us identify what's important to you, our communities, businesses and our many stakeholder partners across the city. We won't be collecting any personal details and responses will remain anonymous. This public survey will be used for a report which will shape and inform the development of the Corporate Plan. We may include quotes of comments made, but they will not be attributed to any individual.
The survey should take less than ten minutes to complete. The closing date for responses is Friday 25th October 2019.
