O’ Cuiv calls for provisions to be made in Climate Action Plan for critical infrastructure

Galway Bay fm newsroom – Galway West Deputy Eamon O’ Cuiv is calling for provision to be made in the Climate Action Plan for critical infrastructure projects.

He adds additional measures should be taken to ensure climate compliance.

It’s as An Bord Pleanala is to reconsider an application for the Galway Ring Road, after permission was quashed on environmental grounds.

Speaking to Galway Talks, Deputy O’ Cuiv argued the Government has a totally “incoherent” policy on transport.

He claims the Cabinet-approved National Development Plan for 2021 to 2030 is, in many cases, incompatible with the Climate Action Plan.

Deputy O’ Cuiv says the goalposts on climate action are also constantly moving – and some clarity is urgently needed.
