Proposed Variation no. 4 to County Development Plan
Proposed Variation No. 4.
Notice is hereby given pursuant to Section 13 of the Planning and Development Act 2000 (as amended) that Longford County Council as the competent authority, has prepared a proposed Variation (No.4) of the Longford County Development Plan 2015 – 2021. The proposed Variation consists of the change of land use zoning of 0.39ha of lands at Knock, Lanesborough, Co. Longford, from the existing land use zoning of ‘Established Residential’ to ‘Commercial/Residential’.
The reason for proposed Variation no. 4 of the Longford County Development Plan 2015-2021, is as a result of the need to provide and facilitate commercial/residential development in this urban location. The site is located within the existing development envelope of the town and is served by existing public infrastructure and facilities. Commercial/residential development in this urban location would facilitate the surrounding residential catchment area and would be in accordance with the sustainable development of the area.
A copy of proposed Variation no. 4 of the Longford County Development Plan 2015-2021, together with the Draft Strategic Environmental Assessment (SEA) Screening Report and Draft Appropriate Assessment (AA) Screening Report are available for public inspection at the Planning Department, Longford County Council, Aras an Chontae, Great Water Street, Longford, from 28th March, 2018 to 30th April, 2018 inclusive, from 9am to 1pm and from 2pm to 4pm, Monday to Friday.
