Joint Oireachtas Committee on Housing, Planning and Local Government

An Bord Pleanála: Discussion

Ms Rachel Kenny:

They are internal workshops initially but the Department has a steering group. The County and City Management Association, CCMA, through the land use and transportation study committee, is also involved in looking at rural housing policy for the development plans and local area plans, and we would be informed of those and, ultimately, involved in that. When the Department reviews its rural housing guidelines, under the local need issue, there will be public consultation on that.
