Special meeting called to thrash out Longford County Development Plan

Local politicians are to hold a special meeting on Monday to address "a number of issues" with a countywide plan designed to underpin Longford's future development.

Elected representatives are expected to hold talks over several key topics of interest raised following around 90 public submissions made concerning the drafting of the Longford County Development Plan 2021 – 2027.

County councillors are responsible for ultimately approving these plans as every local authority in Ireland presses ahead with revising their development plan, taking account of a raft of revised national and regional planning policies and the public’s views.
