Kennedy Launces Strategy 16 March 2012

Kennedy Launches 25 Year Regional Development Strategy

Regional Development Minister Danny Kennedy has launched long term strategic plans that will steer regional development in Northern Ireland up to the year 2035.

The Regional Development Strategy (RDS) document is the result of extensive public consultation, and stakeholder engagement with local government, business, academia, environmental and community groups.

Written with the support and input from Executive colleagues, the RDS addresses key issues including government approach to balanced regional growth, sustainable communities and the challenge of tackling climate change.

Speaking at the launch in the Waterfront Hall in Belfast Danny Kennedy said: The Regional Development Strategy, complementing the Programme for Government, provides an overarching strategic planning framework to facilitate and guide the public and private sectors. It drives to deliver a cohesive cross Departmental strategic approach to regional development.

The strategy is a key document within the planning system and sets out guidance for the preparation of development plans and policy, helping drive urban regeneration initiatives and sits within the new European policy approach to regional redevelopment.

The Regional Development Strategy is closely aligned with the emerging Economic Strategy and provides us with a compass to guide our decision making well into the 21st Century. We have many challenges ahead, but working together as key stakeholders I am confident that we can rise to those challenges and work in partnership to deliver this Strategy.

The Executive formally agreed the strategy earlier this year on 26 January. The document deals with a range of issues which impacts on all government departments and addresses important issues for everyone living in Northern Ireland and further afield.
