Written answers (Question to Housing)

In developing the National Planning Framework (NPF) document, case studies aligned with the National Strategic Outcomes set out in Chapter 10 were included for demonstration purposes to highlight exemplary outcomes, whether for local communities or in terms of having a wider regional and national impact.

This case study referred to above was included as an exemplar of innovation, regional enterprise and community development in a remote rural area.

While the inclusion of specific case studies should not be construed as a commitment to funding support, Project Ireland 2040 sets out an array of capital investment proposals, as distinct from wider current expenditure programmes, that the organisations concerned may benefit from, subject to satisfying the relevant terms and criteria.
