Written answers (Question to Housing)

Housing for All sets out a number of objectives with the aim of improving the functioning of the planning system including the comprehensive review and consolidation of planning legislation. The review forms one of the actions in Housing for All and is set in the context of the broad policy outlined therein.

The review is being overseen by the Attorney General and he has appointed a working group of professionals with planning law expertise to assist him in this work, funded by his Office. My Department has established a dedicated unit headed at Principal Officer level to liaise with the Attorney General on the review.
