Intro Text 
Would you like to make a submission to the Regional Spatial and Economic Strategy (RSES) for the Eastern and Midland Region? 
All local authorities, state agencies, public and private agencies, interest groups and any interested member of the public are invited to make written submissions at this first stage of the process between 20th November 2017 and 5pm on Friday 26th January, 2018. Please make your submission here.
The region covers nine counties containing twelve local authorities namely – Dún Laoghaire-Rathdown, Longford, Westmeath, Offaly, Laois, Louth, Meath, Kildare, Wicklow, Fingal, South Dublin and Dublin City.


The RSES will identify the Eastern and Midland region's key strategic assets, opportunities and challenges and set out policy responses to ensure that people's needs - such as access to housing, jobs, ease of travel and overall well-being are met, up to 2030 and beyond.

This will include:

  • A spatial strategy for the future location of employment, housing and retail development along with supporting infrastructure and services, in a way that enhances the potential of our cities and towns and best protects our environment and our people from the impacts of climate change.
  • An economic strategy with strategic policies to boost competitiveness and support a strong future economy and the creation of high-quality jobs for sustained prosperity.
  • A Dublin Metropolitan Area Strategic Plan (MASP) to plan for the future sustainable growth of the capital city region as set out in the emerging National Planning Framework.
