The EIS was placed on public exhibition from 1 November until 13 December 2018, with DPE inviting feedback on the design concept for the new hospital during that period.
The project team considered each of the submissions received and addressed within a Response to Submissions Report and supplementary information.
The Stage 1 SSD for the hospital concept and early works was approved by the Minister for Planning on 11 June 2019
