Issue Papers

Public participation (including the interests of children) is an essential element in the planning process, and in particular in the formation of planning policies which will shape the future development of the county.

This Issues Paper is intended to encourage dialogue on the key topics important to the County, as well as promote and support your involvement at this early stage. We want you to actively take part in shaping the future of your County. 

The County Development Plan review provides several opportunities for public participation and consultation throughout the process.

With your active help and guidance, the new Kerry County Development Plan can create a more attractive, inclusive, competitive and sustainable county.

Submissions of a strategic nature only are invited at this time; site specific issues cannot be considered at this stage of the plan formation process.

The questions contained in this issues paper are designed to get you thinking. You are free to submit any relevant comments you have on the Development Plan.

At this stage, we want to hear from you!

At this point submissions/observations should relate to Strategic Issues only, i.e. “the big picture”. Site specific issues or the zoning of land for any purpose is not considered at this stage of the development plan process.

Submissions/observations may be made via the following methods:
