The Core Strategy in the Draft Mayo County Development Plan 2021-2027 provides for an increase in population of 1,027 individuals over the plan period, to be accommodated in an additional 470 dwelling units. Mayo County Council are required to identify and reserve an appropriate amount of land in the correct locations to meet housing and population targets.

Future housing supply in the town must be provided in a sustainable manner, aligning with the provisions of the Core Strategy of the County Development Plan, and having regard to established and sustainable settlement patterns and the natural environment.
