RSES Strategic Environmental Assessment Scoping

RSES Strategic Environmental Assessment Scoping

The Southern Regional Assembly is currently preparing the Regional Spatial and Economic Strategy (RSES) for the Southern Region. The objective of the RSES is to support the implementation of the emerging National Planning Framework - Ireland 2040 - and the economic policies and objectives of the Government by providing a long-term planning and economic framework which is consistent with the Framework and those economic policies and objectives.

RPS has been appointed on behalf of the Southern Regional Assembly to carry out the Strategic Environmental Assessment (SEA) on the RSES in accordance with S.I. No. 436 of 2004 as amended and S.I. 600 of 2001, as amended.

In this stage of the scoping process, through the statutory consultations, SRA wishes to establish the range of environmental issues and the level of detail to be included in the Environmental Report for the RSES.
