Final chance to have your say in the future development of the country

The next national development plan has been open for submissions from the public for a few weeks and the closing date is 5pm, 29 January 2021

This consultation offers all people in Ireland - expert stakeholders and users of infrastructure - the opportunity to inform and influence important policy that affects the fabric of our daily lives including the distribution of our people, our jobs, businesses, houses, roads, public transport, education and health infrastructure; our social, cultural and sporting facilities.

The Department of Public Expenditure and Reform invites submissions to Review to Renew, the public consultation element of the National Development Plan.

The review will not be considering the merit of individual projects or sectoral policy strategies as this is a primarily matter for individual Departments and Agencies. Individual projects are selected based on a detailed process which begins with Departments or Agencies setting their own sectoral strategy and goals, and then subsequently identifying specific needs or challenges to be addressed, whether that be through education, regulation, taxation or potentially expenditure on an infrastructure project.

How to respond

Respondents are requested to make their submissions by email to:-

Email: reviewtorenew@per.gov.ie

Stakeholders are asked to respond to a number of questions which can be found here:

https://assets.gov.ie/94408/6f2b9069-1b63-4226-905f-299dda9e5822.pdf

The closing date for receipt of submissions is 17:00, Friday, 29 January 2021 . Please clearly mark your submission in the subject line of your email as “Review to Renew Submission” .

The Department regrets that on account of the measures it has had to put in place in respect of the Covid-19 pandemic, it cannot receive hardcopy submissions by post.
