New legislation in Ireland

New planning legislation in Ireland

The Planning & Development (Amendment) Act 2010 aims to support economic renewal and promote sustainable development by ensuring that the planning system supports infrastructure investment by the State and links land-use plannign closely to evidence-based analysis, for example, population forecasts. It is all about joined-up planning – closer connections between the National Spatial Strategy, Regional Planning Guidelines, Development Plans and Local Area Plans.
