The National Development Plan 2018-2027 together with the National Planning Framework, was published on 16 February, 2018 as Project Ireland 2040.

The National Development Plan (NDP) sets out the Government's intentions for investment in public infrastructure out to 2027, grounded in the strategic investment priorities identified by each Minister and in line with the strategic outcomes developed in the National Planning Framework (NPF).

Given its size and role, my Department does not have any capital expenditure allocation, and therefore there are no projects under my Department or the bodies under its aegis in the National Development Plan.

However, as with other national strategies, my Department does contribute to the overall approach and priorities which are contained in the Plan. Cabinet Committee D provided a forum in which the preparation of the NPF and the NDP were discussed in addition to a number of dedicated Cabinet meetings.

Question No. 149 answered with Question No. 73.
