On Friday, 10th March 2017, the International Centre for Local and Regional Development (ICLRD) together with Ulster University (UU) held a 1-day consultation event on the Issues and Choices Paper recently launched as part of developing a new Irish National Planning Framework (NPF). The purpose of this event was to provide an opportunity for senior policy-makers, planning specialists and practitioners, regional development experts and academics to come together to consider the priority themes and development approaches outlined in the NPF and the implications that these will have for evolving methods of place-making. Held in Ulster University – Magee Campus, Derry/Londonderry, this event focused on the all-island / cross-border dimensions of the NPF. Organised in close association with the Department of Housing, Planning, Community and Local Government, this was the only consultation event to be held in Northern Ireland. The Issues and Choices Paper is currently out for public consultation; with a newly extended closing date for submissions of Friday, 31st March 2017.
