Preparing a Local Transport Plan for Letterkenny.




National policy as contained in the National Planning Framework (NPF) and Irelands Climate Change Strategy are central to the development of this Local Transport Plan as they set out targets for tackling climate change by providing/encouraging more sustainable transportation modes as an alternative to car based transport.


Project Ireland 2040 is the governments overarching policy initiative to make Ireland a better country and comprises both the NPF and the National Development Plan 2018-2027 (NDP).  The NPF identifies the importance of climate change in its National Strategic Outcome (NSO) 4, which relates to ‘Sustainable Mobility’ and NSO 8, ensuring a ‘Transition to a Low Carbon and Climate Resilient Society’.


The Regional Spatial and Economic Strategy (RSES) for the Northern and Western region sets out a framework requirement to prepare a Local Transport Plan (LTP) for the designated ‘Regional’ centre of Letterkenny. The LTP will: examine the current lack of alternatives to the car and land use patterns which can better effect a modal shift to public transport, walking and cycling; will seek to address current issues and anticipate future problems in the transport network of the town; and in doing so will present a detailed analysis of the current transport situation and present potential interventions and recommendations for active travel options, roads based solutions including the strategic routes and solutions to encourage provision and greater use of public transport.





Donegal County Council invite you to assist in the preparation of this Plan by following the attached link and completing this brief survey. Link to Survey


This will greatly assist in informing the preparation of the LTP and to enable further engagement at the subsequent stage of publication of the Draft LTP in 2021. We are keen to hear from all age demographics and sectors of society in respect of their transport experiences and opinions on Letterkenny Transport Infrastructure.


 The survey will be open from Friday 25th September 2020 until Friday 16th October 2020 and can be completed online only by following the attached link. All respondents information will be anonymous and will be used to assist in the preparation of the LTP for Letterkenny.
