We held our annual property conference, Planning & Building for Tomorrow, at the Mansion House, Dublin, on Thursday 18 May.

L-R: Panellist James Ronan, Chief Development Officer, Ronan Group Real Estate; Will Carmody, Managing Partner, Mason Hayes & Curran; Vanessa Byrne, Partner and Co-Head of Real Estate; speaker Colm McCarthy, economist and UCD Lecturer

The event was moderated by journalist and CEO of The Currency, Tom Lyons. Economists Ronan Lyons and Colm McCarthy set the scene with a fireside chat discussing the future of property. Three engaging panels of industry and legal experts debated the key challenges, trends and opportunities in the sector (see details below).

Property Sector Survey

Our audience poll found that 91% of Ireland’s property sector believe that streamlining planning would have the biggest impact on boosting housing supply. Meanwhile, only 4% felt that a new government would have the most significant effect. The majority of respondents (57%) think that the Planning and Development Bill will have no impact on reducing bottlenecks in the planning system. Explore the full survey findings.
