Priorities for Business
We in Chambers Ireland want to see a focus on long-term policy and planning from each Local Authority. One that involves a deeply integrated response to the challenges of decarbonisation, the National Development Plan, and enabling women to remain in the workforce.
We want to see better planning, integrated at a regional level, which ties together sustainable housing developments, better transport infrastructure, and revitalised civic spaces.
In regional areas we want to see communities benefit from the green energy dividend, better supports for non-traditional economic sectors, and providing hot-desk facilities in broadband connected towns to facilitate flexible working. We want Local Enterprise Offices to deliver training for women who are returning to the workplace which is tailored both towards their strengths, and the skills deficits in their particular area.
