A Government report on transport that recommends discouraging one-off housing is now open for public consultation.

Announcing the opening of the public consultation for the report this week, the Department of Transport said the draft strategy aims to manage and reduce congestion.

A recommendation in the draft report outlines that under the National Planning Framework (NPF), policies should be aligned and measures implemented to deliver “compact growth” to reduce travel demand.

It said this will “strengthen system-wide measures to drive adherence with compact growth targets of the NPF”.

According to the Irish Farmers Journal, the long-awaited revised rural housing guidelines, yet to be published, are referenced in the report.

It says the working group over the above recommendation that discourages one-off housing should be consulted on these guidelines.
