Review of the Wexford County Development Plan 2013-2019
and preparation a new County Development Plan

Wexford County Council intends to review the Wexford County Development Plan 2013-2019 and prepare a new development plan for the county.

What is a County Development Plan?
The development plan is a land use plan and its purpose is to provide an overall strategy for the proper planning and sustainable development of the area. It sets out the policies and objectives in relation to a wide range of topics which will guide the future development of the area. It will influence how the county develops during the period 2019-2025 and beyond.  It is therefore important that individuals, residents, communities, groups and businesses have an input into its preparation.

Issues Paper
The Planning Authority has prepared an ‘Issues Paper’ which highlights the strategic ’big picture’ planning issues that will be addressed in the new Plan. These issues include population and housing, economic development, infrastructure, energy provision, climate change, the environment, community facilities, education and conservation and heritage. We want to know what you think about these issues and how we should plan for them. 

While the Planning Authority intends to review the zoning of the area of the development plan for the purposes of developing the objectives and policies to deliver an overall strategy for the proper planning and sustainable development of the area of the development plan, requests or proposals for zoning of particular lands for any purpose shall not be considered at this stage. 

The Issues Paper will be on public display from Friday, 10th February 2017 to Tuesday, 11th April 2017 and can be inspected online at www.wexfordcoco.ie and at the following locations during normal office opening hours:

In just five years, Mario Lanza went from being a 16-year-old Philadelphian truck driver to being the most “in demand” singer in the world. He had a magnificent operatic voice but he appeared on the opera stage only twice. Instead, he was seduced by Hollywood and made eight record-breaking films. Movies like “That Midnight Kiss”, “The Great Caruso”, “The Toast of New Orleans” and “The Student Prince” brought his fame and his voice all around the world. Jose Carreras admitted that Lanza had been his inspiration and Placido Domingo said, “I owe my career in opera to a kid from Philadelphia!”. But the strain of putting on weight to sing and then dieting to shoot the films took its inevitable toll on his health and Mario Lanza died in Italy at the tragically early age of 38. Apart from his films he left behind a wonderful catalogue of recordings and 12 Gold Discs, including; “Be my love”, “The Loveliest Night of the Year”, “Drink! Drink! Drink!”, “Because You’re Mine”, and “I’ll walk with God”. Following his nation-wide success with “I’LL WALK BESIDE YOU” – The Story of Count John McCormack and “BLAZE AWAY” – The Incredible Life of Josef Locke, famed Irish tenor Frank Ryan is joined by soprano Sarah O’Mahony and pianist Thomas Doyle to relive the enchanting but poignant story of the life of Mario Lanza.
