The Challenge

  • The department set out to improve co-ordination across local authorities by creating a single source of consistent, up-to-date planning information for all of Ireland to support government decision making.

The Solution

  • In collaboration with the department, Esri Ireland built the online development planning solution, known as MyPlan.




  • MyPlan gives people in Ireland unprecedented access to information about planning and development throughout the country.


"MyPlan will enable a much more open and transparent system for tracking the integration of plans across the country and is, I believe, a game changer."

Jan O'Sullivan, TD Minister of State, Department of Environment, Community and Local Government with special responsibility for Housing and Planning.
