Consultation on Draft Transport Strategy 2016-2035 for the Greater Dublin Area and associated Strategic Environmental Assessment and Appropriate Assessment
The National Transport Authority (the “Authority”) invites written submissions or observations on the Draft Transport Strategy 2016 – 2035 for the Greater Dublin Area (the “draft Strategy”), which has been prepared by the Authority in accordance with Section 12 of the Dublin Transport Authority Act 2008.
In compliance with Article 9(1) of SI 435 of 2004, a Strategic Environmental Assessment (SEA) of the draft Strategy is being carried out. A draft Environmental Report has been prepared which assesses, at a strategic level, the likely significant effects on the environment of implementing the draft Strategy.
In compliance with EU Council Directive 92/43/EEC on the conservation of natural habitats and of wild fauna and flora, commonly known as the Habitats Directive, an Appropriate Assessment is also being carried out and a Natura Impact Statement has been prepared to determine if the draft Strategy will impact on the integrity and conservation objectives of relevant Natura 2000 sites.
