The Department of Environment’s new planning and spatial data portal system allows the public to view the 400 development and local area plans, developed by the 88 planning authorities, across the country in one easy to use mapping tool. One can also view other information such as census, heritage sites, patterns of housing development, etc.
The system should make it easier for local authorities and other agencies to coordinate plans through the sharing of information while also allowing them to work collaboratively on major infrastructural projects. It is a huge step forward to have all the plans in one location and fully accessible to the public.
