Planning is an important function of local authorities and is also an important issue for the country and local communities. Myplan.ie is a free public information system about development plans and local area plans which are the framework used by local authorities in assessing planning applications. There are over 400 development and local area plans across the country.
The aim of Myplan.ie is to create a one stop shop for information about plans and also to provide other information which is relevant to planning decision-making (census, heritage sites, patterns of housing development etc) that will not only be of benefit to citizens but will also assist with coordination between local authorities and more generally with the delivery of public services.
Myplan.ie is an initiative of the Department of the Environment, Community and Local Government on behalf of all of the planning authorities across the country.
