New Regional Development Strategy - Consultation Begins

The Regional Development Strategy (RDS - Shaping Our Future) has been revised and launched for consultation by Regional Development Minister Conor Murphy. The revision has been in the pipeline for a long time and will be of great interest to communities, councils, developers and many others who want to influence where development and economic growth will be directed in the future, how the environment will be protected and where infrastructure investment will go. The consultation document is available from Louise Fitzpatrick (telephone 9054 0186, email shapingourfuture@drdni.gov.uk) and on www.drdni.gov.uk/shapingourfuture.
