Feasta submission to the Irish National Planning Framework for 2040

We welcome the Plan’s emphasis on revitalising brownfield and other disused urban sites, on regional development, and on strengthening public transport and bicycle infrastructure.

Our primary two concerns about the Plan are:

1. It does not take the economics of energy sufficiently into account
2. More measures need to be put in place to ensure that changes to infrastructure truly benefit everyone in Irish society

We also have some specific suggestions about wording.
