Written answers (Question to Housing)

The target date for the publication of the Marine Planning and Development Management Bill set out in the Climate Action Plan to tackle Climate Breakdown is Q4 2019. Once the legislation is published, it will then be a matter for the Oireachtas to consider. If the Bill is enacted, it will require further enabling measures post enactment to bring the new regime into operation including the necessary regulations, statutory guidelines and transitional arrangements.
