The IoD Welcomes Improvements to the Planning Process

09 January 2014

Speaking after the meeting of the Planning Forum, IoD Business Environment Committee Chairman, Richard Hunter, said: 

"The IoD has, in the past, been a frequent and vocal critic of a planning system that in our view has obstructed rather than facilitated economic growth. 

“But we have also witnessed a recent sea change reflected at the most senior levels in the Planning Service and the Department to create a system that supports the needs of business. 

“We very much welcome the proposals outlined in Mark Durkan's statement today as positive steps towards achieving that goal.

“The IoD will continue to work with Government in creating a business environment that enables our members to grow their businesses and in turn, the Northern Ireland economy.”
