NOTICE OF VARIATION TO THE MONAGHAN COUNTY DEVELOPMENT PLAN 2019-2025 – VARIATION NO.2
Notice is hereby given pursuant to Section 13 of the Planning and Development Act 2000 (as amended) that on 7th December 2020, Monaghan County Council made a variation (Variation No.2) to the Monaghan County Development Plan 2019-2025. The variation provides for the inclusion of the following text within Section 1.12 of Chapter One of the development plan:-
“The Monaghan County Development Plan (MCDP) was prepared concurrently with both the National Planning Framework (NPF) and the Northern & Western Regional Spatial and Economic Strategy (NWRA RSES) and a significant amount of synergy was achieved between the provisions of the MCDP and the provisions of both the NPF and the NWRA RSES as a consequence. However, for the purposes of clarity the provisions of the NPF and the NWRA RSES will take precedence over the provisions of MCDP.”
The variation will also provide for the following minor amendments to the development plan:-
- the removal of the text referencing the Regional Planning Guidelines for the Border Region and the Regional Spatial and Economic Strategy (RSES) as a draft document in Table 1.1 within Chapter One of the MCDP, and its replacement with text referring to the adopted RSES.
- the references to Monaghan Town as the Principal Town replaced with “Key Town”.
- the insertion within Section 2.3.4 in Chapter 2 and Section 11.2 in Chapter 11 of the MCDP of the additional text (in bold)“In recognition of performing an important sub-regional function for employment, housing and services for the south of the County, Carrickmacross is designated as a location with strategic development potential of a regional scale in the Regional Spatial & Economic Strategy for the Northern & Western Regional Assembly area”
A copy of the development plan as varied is available for inspection at the planning offices of Monaghan County Council during opening hours from 9.15am – 5pm (lunch time closing 1:00 – 1:30 p.m.).
