Ceisteanna Eile - Other Questions: Planning Issues (1 Dec 2022)

Catherine Connolly: 14. To ask the Minister for Housing, Planning, and Local Government further to Parliamentary Question No. 175 of 27 September 2022, the status of the development of the promised section 28 guidelines for planning in Gaeltacht areas; the timeline for the public consultation; the timeline for the publication of the guidelines; and if he will make a statement on the matter. [59700/22]

Catherine Connolly: Baineann mo cheist leis na treoracha pleanála do na cheantair Ghaeltachta. Táimid ag fanacht orthu le fada an lá. Ba mhaith liom soiléiriú a fháil maidir le stádas na dtreoracha sin. I seek clarification about the promised section 28 guidelines for planning in Gaeltacht areas. I did not hear the answer to the previous question but I am sure the two...

Peter Burke: I thank Deputy Connolly for her question. The interdepartmental group, comprising officials from my Department, the Department of Tourism, Culture, Arts, Gaeltacht, Sport and Media, and Údarás na Gaeltachta, is in place to support and accelerate the ongoing work on planning guidelines in Gaeltacht areas. A key aim of the interdepartmental group is to ensure that procedures and...

Catherine Connolly: Guidelines were originally due to be completed by the end of 2021, then in 2022, and now we are coming into 2023. Tuairisc.ie and the Irish-language committee, chaired by Deputy Ó Snodaigh, has covered this. We produced a report and made specific recommendations. It has been raised by every delegation that has come before our committee and when we have travelled the country. I am...

Ceisteanna Eile - Other Questions: Planning Issues (1 Dec 2022)

Peter Burke: To be clear, there is no confusion here. Much work has gone on. The Minister, Deputy Darragh O'Brien, met Conradh na Gaeilge recently, which is central to this. I have met Gaeltacht communities across the country. In response to that, to underwrite, secure and ensure consistent and sustainable planning in our Gaeltacht areas, these guidelines are specific to Gaeltacht areas. They will be...

Catherine Connolly: Given the climate emergency, I have no difficulty with the importance of strategic environmental assessments and so on. That goes without saying but we are not at that point. We do not have planning guidelines. The delay has been on the part of many Governments. We are waiting for the planning guidelines. The people coming before us are not exaggerating. Everyone knows there is a...

Peter Burke: It is important to correct Deputy Connolly and say that the guidelines physically exist. They have to be screened as part of appropriate assessment before they can be published. That is part of the environmental process.

Catherine Connolly: Is that process ongoing?

Cormac Devlin: The next session will be questions to the Minister for Further and Higher Education, Research, Innovation and Science. While we await his arrival, I welcome our guests to the Visitors Gallery. Good morning to everybody. You are all very welcome. There were other visitors during the debate earlier, too. It is great to have so many visitors to the House today. It is an historic day, with...

Ceisteanna Eile - Other Questions: Departmental Policies (1 Dec 2022)

Darragh O'Brien: B'fhéidir nach raibh an Teachta ag éisteacht le mo fhreagra ar an gceist sin. I answered it very clearly. We have set targets. We are using modern methods of construction. I suggest the Deputy be careful not to blur the lines, if I may. The emergency response to provide safe harbour to our friends from Ukraine, as Deputy O'Dowd has eloquently said, is separate to what we are...

(Interruptions).

Darragh O'Brien: Níl mé críochnaithe fós. Let us be very clear that the targets with regard to additional delivery on modern methods of construction are very clearly set out and we will manage that centrally. This is different. There is a real opportunity to further ramp up the delivery of social and affordable homes, which I know the Deputy is asking for, but that is a separate...

Ceisteanna Eile - Other Questions: Departmental Policies (1 Dec 2022)

Peadar Tóibín: We support safe harbour. It is a moral and international responsibility when people are fleeing war, violence or famine to stand up and give them shelter when it is needed. Nobody is arguing that point. We are simply saying there must be equality in the delivery of services in this State. The only baseline we are asking for in this situation is one from which everybody who is resident in...

Ceisteanna Eile - Other Questions: Departmental Policies (1 Dec 2022)

Darragh O'Brien: We will deliver more new-build social homes in 2022 than we have done in decades. Approximately 10,500 social homes will be delivered for people who are on the social housing list. Some of the sheltered response we have for our friends from Ukraine are not permanent homes, such as the refurbished properties. I know the Deputy is not suggesting we would use that same response for people on...
