Have Your Say

Public consultation is important to us.  We need to know what issues effect our local communities and what are the needs of individuals and communities living in our local areas.  This helps us make better decisions in terms of our plans, our policies and the services and supports that we provide.

Letterkenny 2040


Donegal County Council is pleased to announce the launch of Letterkenny 2040 – a process to develop a regeneration strategy for Letterkenny town centre. 


This exciting project is funded by the Urban Regeneration and Development Fund (URDF), a flagship initiative of Project Ireland 2040 and led by Donegal County Council’s Regeneration and Development Team. The strategy will establish a compelling and ambitious vision for the future of the town as a competitive regional centre, attracting investment and identifying a series of projects to bring about a social, economic and environmental transformation of the town centre. 


Due to Covid 19 restrictions engagement will take place online through a project website and social media channels.   The public are therefore warmly invited to visit where they can find out more about the project and complete an online survey.    Details for further engagement activities will be published as the project progresses, ensuring that everyone can have their say and help make Letterkenny 2040 the best possible plan for Letterkenny town centre and the wider North West Region.
