4.13.1 Industry Consultation

The majority of planning applications within the city have open space and landscape proposals prepared by Landscape Architects and consultation with the profession was arranged through the Irish Landscape Institute for this strategy. The key outcomes of those discussions are indicated in the table above, which notes the key issued raised and the potential solutions at each stage of the planning process. While potential solutions to issues can be identified, the ability to achieve them may depend on resources available. The consultation with professionals will continue with the objective of improvement of the planning application process for landscape submissions. In particular, the updating and enhancement of guidance for landscape professionals will be a priority for Parks Services.
