THIS EVENT IS CPD CERTIFIED



This timely seminar will bring together policymakers and key stakeholders to examine the next steps in delivering the National Planning Framework (NPF) - ‘Ireland 2040: Our Plan’.


Delegates will examine Government priorities for the effective implementation of the NPF, including the delivery of national policy objectives and strategic outcomes. They will consider the latest thinking on linking the cities and regions of Ireland - including the role of Regional Assemblies, and priorities for delivering the transport and digital infrastructure needed to support growth.


Those attending will also consider the priorities for investment - looking at the next steps for the National Investment Plan for 2018 - 2027, as well as the challenges for addressing existing critical infrastructure deficits and delivering stable investment across Ireland’s key sectors.


Further sessions discuss latest thinking on meeting the needs of communities, and examine strategies for effective spatial and metropolitan planning and development.
