Councillors unhappy as minister orders controversial alterations to Cork development plan


Cork County Council has been instructed to make a number of controversial alterations to its County Development Plan (2022-2028) in Carrigtwohill, Bantry, and Fermoy by Peter Burke, the Minister of State with responsibility for Local Government and Planning. Mr Burke has backed objections made by the Office of the Planning Regulator (OPR) to parts of the council’s blueprint for future development. In addition, Mr Burke has directed the council not to rezone some green belt land on the southside of Fermoy, near Corrin, for industrial development. Meanwhile, in the same area, Mr Burke has also ruled against council-backed plans for the expansion of Cork Mart's existing facilities and the creation of an NCT centre on its site. Independent councillor Alan Coleman, who lives in South Cork, which hasn't been affected by the decisions, also criticised the directive.
