Written answers (Question to Taoiseach)

The Government supports initiatives and projects that promote the sustainable and balanced development of the economic, social and cultural infrastructures of the country.

Such development must happen in accordance with all relevant planning legislation, guidelines and processes as determined by the relevant statutory authority who are independent in their decision-making.

I and my Department have no responsibility in the area of planning applications or decisions.
