Following selection of the Preferred Option, Phase 3 will commence subject to approvals. This is programmed to take two years with the key deliverables being the Design Report, the Environmental Impact Assessment Report, the Statutory Process Documentation and the Preliminary Business Case. Subject to government approval, the formal planning submission is then made to An Bord Pleanála in Phase 4.
Throughout the Phase 3 design process, the N/M20 Project Team are committed to proactively engaging with members of the public and those who are impacted directly and indirectly upon by the project. The design process and identification of impacts on land and property will take time and we seek your continuing patience and engagement with the project team.
In order to inform the design process, the N/M20 Project Team will undertake a range of engineering and environmental surveys. The design team will be in contact with land and property owners regarding these surveys. As the design reaches a level of maturity where informed discussions can take place, the N/M20 Project Team will consult directly with potentially impacted land and property owners on the developing design.
Meetings with land and property owners will be facilitated through online and/or face to face meeting by prior appointment. This is to ensure that the appropriate members of the project team are available and are suitably prepared for productive discussions.
All feedback will be reviewed and amendments considered, before finalising the design and land requirements.
