The Government has launched a user-friendly guide to planning enforcement in Irelandand a shorter summary leaflet on the same subject. The two documents on planning enforcement are available on www.environ.ie.
Minister for Housing and Planning, Jan O’Sullivan, TD comments: “Rebuilding public confidence in the planning system is one of my key aims. For too long the way we communicate planning information has been weighted down with technical jargon that is accessible to the professional, but often leaves the general public more confused than when they started.”
He adds: “I warmly welcome the focus on clear communication of the planning system that professional bodies such as the Irish Planning Institute have prioritised. Our planning system must belong to the broad community, not vested interests, and clearly communicating key aspects of how the planning system works is an important step in achieving this goal.”
