Proposed Variation - Kildare County Development Plan 2011-2017

Notice of Proposed Variation of Kildare County Development Plan 2011-2017 (Variation No. 2) for the designation of the central area of Kildare Town as an Architectural Conservation Area (ACA).

Notice is hereby given pursuant to Section 13 of the Planning & Development Acts 2000-2013 that, at its meeting on 29 July 2013, Kildare County Council agreed to initiate a Variation of the Kildare County Development Plan 2011-2017 to designate the central area of Kildare Town as an Architectural Conservation Area (ACA).

The reason for the variation is to protect the special character of Kildare Town and set out conservation and planning policies to protect its special character, which will guide future development. The proposed variation is also accompanied by a guidance document entitled “The Kildare Town Architectural Conservation Area, Statement of Character “ which gives specific guidance in relation to the future development of the area.

Kildare County Council has concluded, following screening for Strategic Environmental Assessment (SEA) in accordance with Article 13K of the Planning and Development Regulations 2001 - 2012 and Appropriate Assessment (AA) screening under Article 6(3) of the Habitats Directive, that further SEA and AA of the proposed Variation is not necessary.
