Written answers (Question to Minister for the Environment, Heritage and Local Government)

Draft regional planning guidelines for the greater Dublin area were published jointly by the Dublin and mid-east regional authorities on 19 December 2003. The draft guidelines are on public display until 5 March 2004. In accordance with the requirements of the Planning and Development Act 2000, a copy of the draft guidelines has been formally submitted to my Department. The draft guidelines are being examined with a view to considering whether a formal submission from the Department with regard to the draft guidelines would be appropriate.
