Manifesto for Planning - Election2020

Planning, planners and the planning system are vital if we want to achieve zero carbon and climate change targets, build more housing and sustainable communities and promote compact growth. RTPI Ireland and the Irish Planning Institute have collaborated to prepare this manifesto of key commitments which Planners are seeking the new government to commit to.

​Housing and Planning Development Bill

RTPI Ireland has responded to the Irish Government’s consultation on General Scheme of the Housing and Planning and Development Bill 2019.  We expressed concerns over proposals to restrict access to justice on environmental matters and suggested that a more appropriate solution is to establish a separate Planning and Environmental Division of the High Court.
