RIAI Research and Policy: National Policy Review

Designing a Lasting Localised Recovery: Plan Better, Design Better, Build Better

The RIAI’s Policy Submission to Review to Renew - the Public Consultation of the Review of the National Development Plan.

In this policy document, the RIAI asks that public investment must meet three challenges in the coming decades:

1. It must meet UN and EU Green Deal carbon reduction targets;

2. Planning and development frameworks must account for demographic and related changes with regard to household size, housing mix, education, healthcare and others;

3. It must be sustained at higher levels to correct for past under-investment.

The policy is set out under immediate priorities, medium targets and long-term targets.
