Cabinet Approval sought for
Sustainable Development Plan for Meath

An advanced development plan that solves the current legal, environmental and heritage issues around the controversial M3 motorway, and which also provides a wider model for sustainable economic, heritage and tourism development in Meath.

The innovative plan, which has been briefed to the public, facilitates the designation of the region as a UNESCO World Heritage site, resulting in the preservation, protection and sustainable management of the archaeology in the valley while bringing a potential increase of €75 million in tourism revenue per annum. Development in the designated region would be eco-designed and promoted on a small scale, in line with recent guarantees by the Minister for the Environment to protect the unique character of the area.
