Welcome to Myplan.ie
Welcome to Myplan.ie, a free and easy to use public information system about the development plan or local area plan in your local area.
Planning is a very important function of local authorities and is also an important issue for the country and local communities. Planning is about people and place, how future development will be guided to ensure that, together, economic recovery is assured, quality of life is improved and environmental qualities are either protected or enhanced. The development plan or the local area plans of your local authority is the framework used in assessing planning applications. There are over 400 development and local area plans across the country. Some are large such as the Dublin City Development Plan while some may be for smaller villages, right across the country. To know about planning in your area and key requirements, whether as someone thinking of submitting a planning application or inputting to their assessment through public consultation, you must consult your local plan.
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). I believe that it 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, for example schools.
Myplan.ie is an initiative of the Department of the Environment, Community and Local Government on behalf of each of the 88 planning authorities across the country. The local authorities will ensure that the information is kept up to date as possible.
The Department, with local authorities and other public bodies are working to ensure that, over time, Myplan.ie.will expand to incorporate information about other aspects of the planning system such as information about planning applications and other planning matters being handled by local authorities and An Bord Pleanála.
I hope you find the free Myplan.ie service useful. We would welcome your feedback to help its development and improvement would be appreciated.

Minister of State for Housing and Planning
