THE Green Party in Kerry welcomed the launch of the National Development Plan (NDP) yesterday as the largest and greenest ever, delivering on Green Party commitments to futureproof the plan and deliver for climate, communities, and equality.

The plan lays out a vision for Ireland over the next 10 years, with public investment of €165 billion over the period 2021-2030.

The NDP includes commitments to spending €3.8bn on public transport and twice as much on new public transport initiatives as on new roads.

“This is really good news for rail and bus services into and around Kerry,” says Kerry branch chairperson Anluan Dunne. “The commitment to spend €360m per year on walking and cycling infrastructure for the term of this Government has now been extended to 2030.

“The plan prioritises public transport, while setting aside €17.3m for climate resilience and adaptation of existing roads. The N22 Farranfore-to-Killarney road project will be subject to further approvals in terms of its climate impact. I plan on continuing my engagement with communities along the proposed N22 route to inform them of how the revised NDP will impact the delivery of this unnecessary road development.”
