336-i. Comments: sustainability assessment and EIA process reports

The NCEA reviewed process reports of a sustainability assessment and an EIA for road development in Ireland.

Significant details

The NCEA was asked to review two documents that were prepared as part of assessments of the road sector in Ireland:

  • 'A sustainability assessment process for road-building and other development in Ireland';
  • 'Assessment of EIA process on roads in Ireland - Integrated Report'.

The NCEA issued an advice of the secretariat. Regarding the former report, it concluded that it is well-written but might benefit from some suggestions to enhance its policy influence, while some detailed comments were made on its content. For the latter report, general comments included that the mentioning of positive experiences/influences might enhance acceptance of the EIA and that participation of stakeholders may improve the quality of the report.
