Northern Ireland's Stustainable Development Plan Public Consultation

The NI Executive has now published its own SD strategy with an attendant implementation plan, the latter of which is in its public consultation phase. The Implementation Plan consists of a set of commitments by all government departments - and by some non-government bodies - which are intended to contribute to the delivery of a set of objectives, already agreed by the Executive and contained in the strategy.

Officials in OFMDFM and, indeed, we in the SDC are very keen to generate feedback to Departments on what people think of their contributions.


The full document is a bit unwieldy in its current form but OFMDFM is inviting written responses in two
ways.


Firstly, people can offer comments on the whole plan http://www.ofmdfmni.gov.uk/consultation_document-2.doc or you can offer a short response within your area of expertise or specific interest. http://www.ofmdfmni.gov.uk/quick_response_template.doc


As part of the consultation, OFMDFM is also organising a series of 'roadshows'. The first of these takes place in Belfast on Thursday this week, with subsequent dates for Derry, Cookstown, Ballymena, Coleraine, Lurgan, Newry, Omagh and Enniskillen. The full list of dates and venues is available here....http://www.ofmdfmni.gov.uk /index/economic-policy/economic-policy-sustainable-development/consultation_events_timetable.ht


You are very welcome to come along and provide your input at these events. In addition, it would be very helpful if you could let your local contacts aware of tem and, if at all possible, help us to stimulate some local input to the consultation.


The associated documents are all available at this link.
