The Built Environment unit of An Taisce took time over the summer to review the very popular database for structures at risk, which was originally released in November 2014. In this we are tracking some 120 buildings and structures at risk which were considered significant nationally and regionally and required intervention to prevent further deterioration. While there has been progress in securing certain buildings particularly in the Dublin City area, the majority of buildings recorded remain at risk and are becoming increasingly lost.

What is the National Planning Framework?

The National Planning Framework (NPF) is a successor to the National Spatial Strategy 2002. In short, the NPF will be a broad national plan set out by the Government that will establish a long term, 20+ year strategy for spatial development in Ireland. The NPF currently being drawn up, will have a direct influence on strategic planning for the entire country until 2040.

Why is the NPF important?
