Mr. John Gormley, T.D., Minister for the Environment, Heritage and Local Government(Ireland) on 8 October 2009 published the Government Policy on Architecture 2009-2015 Towards a Sustainable Future: Delivering Quality within the Built Environment. At an event to launch the Policy in the Custom House, the Minister outlined his belief that the new Policy on Architecture 2009-2015 “provides a dynamic framework for the implementation of public policy on architecture over the next seven years”.The implementation of the Policy on Architecture should lead to a greater emphasis on the role of architectural and urban-design quality in the design of the built environment. Minister Gormley emphasised that “the Policy complements and supports the Government’s wider economic strategy in areas such as research, green enterprise and the development of efficient and sustainable technologies for the built environment. Within the Policy there are various actions that support initiatives on job creation, enterprise and the export of Irish skills and products abroad.”
