Stage 1 – Pre-Draft

At this early stage in the Plan-making process there is no Draft Plan prepared, rather the Council is seeking input from stakeholders, communities, businesses and services providers to determine what the Plan should contain. The Council welcomes in particular, submissions from our young people and from children. To help support your consideration and involvement at this early stage the following have been prepared for you.

Have your say!

This Stage 1 consultation process runs from Friday 18th September 2020 to Monday 16th November 2020. Submissions or observations must be submitted by 4pm on Monday 16th November 2020 in one of the following ways.

We want children of all ages to get involved in the Plan-making process. Children are invited to complete the attached Activity Worksheet to test their knowledge of Tipperary and learn about where energy comes from. We also want to hear from children of all ages and so encourage kids to make their own submission to the plan-making process, just click on the link to the on-line submission form!

We would really like schools (both primary and secondary) in Tipperary to encourage classes to partake in a special competition to support the preparation of the County Development Plan.

The Theme of the competition is ‘The Town I’d like’.

There are a number of Sub-Themes including:

• Getting Around,
• Meeting friends,
• Good for Granny,
• Living over the Shop,
• Ecology and Wildlife,
• Space for fun,
• The Best Shops,
• Food and Restaurants,
• Our Past.

We really want to hear ideas from children on how they would make changes to their local town or village to make it a place that they really love. Classes can submit their ideas in any of the following ways via the on-line form below:

• a set of posters/artworks,
• Their ideas for designs for street furniture (i.e. bicycle stand, seats and tables, bin, lamp stand etc),
• Written suggestions for ways your local town/village could be better. The best entries will feature in the County Development Plan itself and will help us plan for our towns and villages.
