    The draft version of the National Planning Framework Plan entitled Ireland 2040 is now available to view with submissions being sought by 3rd November 2017.

    The draft plan seeks predicts a growth of 1 million people during the lifetime of the Plan. This population growth will be dispersed as follows:

    ?25% is planned for Dublin, recognised as the key international and global city of scale and principal economic driver,
    ?25% across the other four cities combined (Cork, Limerick, Galway and Waterford), enabling all four to grow their population and jobs by 50-60%, and become cities of greater scale, i.e. growing by twice as much as they did over the previous 25 years to 2016, and
    ?with the remaining 50% of growth to occur in key regional centres, towns, villages and rural areas, to be determined in the forthcoming regional plans – Regional Spatial and Economic Strategies (RSESs).
