The Treatment of Material Assets (Property) in Environmental Impact Statements in Ireland – Lorcan Sirr

From the Sustainable Development Evaluation of Road Infrastructure Programmes and Projects

This Report reviews the ‘Property’ section of the Kildare ByPass, the N6 Galway to East Ballinasloe, and the Lucan Outer Ring Road Phases I and II. The Report finds that property is grossly under-evaluated in these Environmental Impact Statements, and that part of the reason for this is the treatment of property in the Roads Act 1993, and also the lack of use of appropriately qualified personnel to conduct the assessment of property impacts for EISs. This Report makes 12 recommendations for the treatment of property in EISs, based on the findings from the material reviewed.
