Development Management

The Council operates a Development Contribution Scheme to part fund the provision of public infrastructure and facilities in the county.  All planning permissions are subject to this scheme, including permissions granted on appeal by An Bord Pleanála, unless exempt in accordance with the provisions of the scheme.

It should be noted that from 1st January 2020, the Development Contribution Rates will increase by 6.6% in accordance with the Tender Price Index. The rates of contributions effective from 1st January 2020 shall be as follows:

Residential €98.21 per m2

Non-residential €76.69 per m2 

These rates of development contributions are payable to the Council in respect of the three classes of public infrastructure referred to under Article 9 of the Development Contribution Scheme 2016 – 2020.  An additional contribution is payable to Irish Water in respect of public infrastructure provided by them.  Developers should contact Irish Water directly in this regard.
