Project Ireland 2040 (Ireland)

(Today) 16th February 2018 Ireland published the results of its Project Ireland 2040 process, that seeks to plan for regional development and an additional one million additional residents. Project Ireland 2040 is here.

It consists of two plans.

A National Planning Framework (NPF) will decide how to achieve balanced regional development. It will prioritise growth in the major cities of Dublin, Cork, Galway, Limerick and Waterford (Dublin is forecast to grow at a slower rate). This NPF is here.

The second strand is the National Development Plan (NDP), a 10-year, €115 billion programme to upgrade State infrastructure in anticipation of the population increase.

The Irish Times (newspaper) summaries here.
