    I haven't seen this mentioned on here yet.
    An opportunity to get your ideas in.
    Whether it will be like all the previous big plans of the past that lead to nothing,who knows?

    The Department of Housing, Planning, Community and Local Government is leading the preparation of the National Planning Framework, or ‘NPF’, on behalf of Government, with input from other Departments and Agencies. It will be particularly relevant where there is a long term and place-based aspect to public policy and investment, including areas such as housing, jobs, transport, education, health, environment, energy and communications.

    One of the principal purposes of preparing the NPF will be to co-ordinate all of these specific departmental or ‘sectoral’ areas into an overall strategy. This will allow shared national development goals, including improved living standards, quality of life, prosperity, competitiveness and environmental sustainability, to be more broadly considered. This will also provide greater clarity for private sector investment.

    It is intended that the Ireland 2040 Plan will be a high-level document that will provide the framework for future development and investment in Ireland. It will be the overall Plan from which other, more detailed plans will take their lead, hence the title, National Planning ‘Framework’, including city and county development plans and regional strategies. The National Planning Framework will also have statutory backing.

    Is there anyway we could as a "Community group" could come to an agreed approach to this?

    Surely it would be a good idea for us to come up with the best approach for Ireland to invest in infrastructure over the next 20 years?

    We all complain about the powers that be continually F it up and invest in the wrong areas. Why not use this as a project where we could potentially do something positive?

    I would suggest it would need a sub forum as we'd need threads for rural, suburban , city , health, education ,transport etc
