THE ENVIRONMENTAL PROTECTION Agency (EPA) is looking for the public to send them their ideas on how they would like to see Ireland’s environment protected and improved.

The ideas will be included in the EPA’s Strategic Plan 2013-2015: Working with others for a Better Environment, which sets out proposed priority actions that the EPA will take between now and the end of 2015 to ensure that Ireland’s environment is protected as a valuable asset for the people of Ireland.

Laura Burke, EPA Director General, believes a clean, healthy and well protected environment lies at the heart of economic recovery. She added:

We want to hear your views on what should be included in our new strategic plan. I would encourage people to get involved in this consultation process and help shape the future of environmental protection in Ireland.

The EPA is also working with Government departments and other agencies and organisations to get their views on what they think should be included in the list of priorities for protecting the environment.

The EPA Strategic Plan 2013-2015 is due to be published in December, a draft of the plan is available on the EPA website. Those who would like to make suggestions can do so by visiting the EPA’s website.
