County Donegal Heritage Plan

The National Heritage Plan requires local authorities to prepare and implement Local Heritage Plans. The National Heritage Plan recognises that the need for the protection of our heritage must begin at the local level. Central to achieving this goal is the preparation and adoption of the County Donegal Heritage Plan. Donegal County Council recognises the importance of “placing heritage at the heart of public life”, as advocated in the National Heritage Plan.  The Department of Culture, Heritage & the Gaeltacht is in the process of preparing a new National Heritage Plan - Heritage Ireland 2030.

 

The County Donegal Heritage Plan identifies a list of actions which will be taken to achieve its strategic aims and objectives. The County Donegal Heritage Plan has identified heritage issues and needs in the county and aims to address them locally, within a regional and national framework. The County Donegal Heritage Plan provides the basis for the identification, investigation, interpretation, promotion, preservation, conservation and enhancement of County Donegal's built, cultural and natural heritage, and sets out a strategy for the management of heritage resources and landscapes in a sustainable manner.  The County Donegal Heritage Plan addresses priorities set out in the Cultúr: A Strategic Vision for Cultural Services, Donegal County Council and Heritage Council Strategy (2018-2022).
