Now is the time to shape the future for our Region. The Northern and Western Region has huge potential for the well-being of its residents but various studies have shown that “Business as Usual” would result in continuing rural decline. The Regional Authority has produced a draft Regional Spatial and Economic Strategy (RSES) that aims to craft a vision for the region that harnesses our potential across a number of areas.
This is a really important document. The RSES must play a strategic role in urban and rural design and protection of our natural and built heritage – protecting this regions unique sense of place. It also must provide a strategy for future challenges.
But does it really do this? Here are some topics for discussion:
- Do we agree with the vision for our area?
- Do we agree with the planning strategy for our region?
- Will the strategy for agriculture sustain rural communities into the future?
- Can the strategy combine sustainability and economic development?
This meeting is organised by members of the Environmental College of Leitrim PPN and
the Irish Environmental Pillar.
