A tender has been published on the eTenders website looking to appoint an independent planning expert to evaluate the recently published Planning Review Report. The expert will be required to evaluate the twelve actions contained in the report and the broader themes identified within it. The appointee will also asked to propose any further additional measures they deem appropriate. They must then consult with and present their findings to the Minister for Housing and Planning, Jan O’Sullivan TD.
Announcing the appointment, the Minister said “while I have accepted fully the review completed by my Department, I am ensuring that the process, the report and its findings stand up to independent scrutiny by ensuring that all actions and recommendations and the full review on which they are based are to be considered by an independent planning expert”.
