This year Chambers Ireland organised our budgetary asks under three themes:
- A Strategy for Towns and Cities/Urban Ireland
- Delivering on Climate Action and Sustainable Infrastructure
- Inclusive and Productive Local Economies
Given the work that was going on under various Government programmes including the recently published Review of the National Development Plan, the Housing for All Strategy, and the ongoing Town Centre First Initiative there was a lot of overlaps between our budget asks and these multi-annual projects. Significant funds have already been committed to these works, and the strategies have resulted in a reprioritisation of projects.
