Due to COVID-19 and the restrictions people faced during the public consultation period, Mr. Eoghan Murphy T.D., Minister for Housing, Planning and Local Government, has announced an extension to the public consultation on the Significant Water Management Issues for Ireland. The extended consultation will now run until Friday, 7th August 2020.
