The process of preparing the Strategic Integrated Framework Plan commenced in September 2011 and involved extensive research and consultation with key stakeholders such as community groups, industries and other employers adjacent to the estuary and the public at large. The SIFP was published in November 2013.

 

It comprises a strategic level approach incorporating objective-led policies and the identification of Strategic Development Locations (SDLs) and Areas of Opportunity.

 

The SIFP incorporates 3 volumes;

 

Volume 1: Written Statement

Volume 2: Appendices

Volume 3: Maps and Figures

 

In addition there is An Executive Summary and the Environmental Assessments (SEA Environmental Report and HDA Natura Impact Report) which act as supporting documents. The documents can be assessed and downloaded through the following link:

In addition, each of the relevant Local Authorities have prepared variations to their County Development Plans in order to zone the areas of land identified in the SIFP for Marine Related Industry and to provide the statutory backing to these sites. The relevant documents can be viewed through the following links:
