County Mayo Heritage & Biodiversity Strategy 2023-2030


The County Mayo Heritage Forum, facilitated by Mayo County Council, is preparing a County Heritage and Biodiversity Strategy and we would like to hear your views. The Heritage Forum comprises elected representatives, representatives from the community and voluntary sector and a wide range of organisations and state agencies with an interest in or responsibility for Mayo’s heritage.


The Heritage Act 1995 states that the national heritage includes monuments, archaeological objects, heritage objects, architectural heritage, flora, fauna, wildlife habitats, landscapes, seascapes, heritage parks and gardens, wrecks, geology and inland waterways.

We are seeking your input in setting the priorities for Mayo’s new Heritage and Biodiversity Strategy. We want to know the aspects of Mayo’s heritage and biodiversity that you value and want to see celebrated and conserved.

You can take part in the pre-draft consultation process by:


  • attending one of the upcoming pre-draft consultation drop-in information sessions to be held as follows:
Venue DateTime
Ballina LibraryTuesday 28th February4.30 pm to 7.00 pm
Claremorris LibraryWednesday 1st March4.30 pm to 7.00 pm
Áras Inis Gluaire, BelmulletThursday 2nd March4.30 pm to 7.00 pm


Information gathered during this process will feed into the new Heritage and Biodiversity Strategy for the county, which will guide priority areas of action in Mayo up to 2030.
