P-05-984 Provide key-worker childcare equivalent to what was available prior to the Covid-19 pandemic, Correspondence – Petitioner to Committee, 07.09.20

Dear Committee,

Thank you for providing me with this information and the correspondence from the Minister to the Committee.

I am pleased to hear that the timescales for consultations can be extended at the DNS application stage. Given the potential impact that such large scale developments could have on communities  (in this case a large scale commercial incinerator), I should be grateful if I could be provided with the criteria for what would allow such an extension to be granted? I realise that every case may be different, but the concern my residents have about not being able to fully engage in a remote consultation for such a highly technical and emotive potential development, is significant.

I really appreciate the Committee’s further consideration of this matter.

Kind regards,
