To ask the Minister for the Environment, Community and Local Government in view of the report published on 25 April last by the Institute of Directors in Ireland which found that insufficient consideration is being given to the skills required when appointments are made to State boards, if he will outline the criteria and process by which new members, including the new chairperson, were selected and appointed to An Bord Pleanála in view of the fact that there is only one architect sitting on the appeals board and no member holds a professional qualification in conservation or urban design; if any of these new members were direct appointments made by him under Section 106 (1) (e) of the Planning and Development Act 2000; and if he will make a statement on the matter. - Mick Wallace. For ORAL answer on Thursday, May 3rd 2012.   To ask the Minister for the Environment, Community and Local Government his views on the report published on 25 April last which stated that a majority of its directors do not believe that the process of appointments to State boards is fair and transparent; if he will state whether the most recent appointments, including the new Chairperson, to An Bord Pleanála were made under Section 106 (1) or Section 106 (7) of the Planning and Development Act 2000 and if he will specify the criteria used in both the nomination and the appointment process; if he will name the organisations which participated in the nomination process if new members were appointed under Section 106 (1); and if he will make a statement on the matter. - Mick Wallace. For ORAL answer on Thursday, 3rd May, 2012.   REPLY I propose to take these questions together. The Planning and Development Acts 2000 – 11 provide that the Board comprises a Chairperson and up to 9 ordinary members. The processes for the appointment of the Chair and ordinary Board Members are clearly and transparently set out under sections 105–107 of the Act and associated regulations.   In relation to the position of Chairperson, the appointment is made by Government from candidates selected by an independent statutory selection committee. The composition of this committee is set out under section 105 of the Act and, where a vacancy arises, the committee is required to select a maximum of three suitable candidates from among those who compete in a publicly advertised open competition. The selection committee established in accordance with the Act includes:  
  • the President of the High Court
  • the Chairperson of An Taisce
  • the Cathaoirleach of the General Council of County Councils
  • the President of the Executive Council of the Irish Congress of Trade Unions.
  Dr. Mary Kelly was appointed in May 2011 on foot of this process.   The appointment process for ordinary Board Members, set out under section 106 of the Act, provides that appointments are made by the Minister from nominees put forward by four representative panels of nominating bodies prescribed for this purpose.   The organisations which make up these nominating panels are set out in Article 64 of the Planning and Development Regulations 2001 as amended. These bodies represent a wide range of interests so that potential appointees are drawn from a balanced group of people, with diverse backgrounds, who can reach a balanced view on the issues with which the Board is concerned. Each body in each panel was invited to nominate two candidates for consideration for appointment to the Board.   Arising from four recent appointments made by Minister Hogan, the Board will shortly comprise eight members including the Chair. In making these appointments cognisance was taken of the balance of skill sets and expertise required by Board members for the effective discharge of An Bord Pleanála’s complex and wide ranging functions, as well as the balance of skill sets and qualifications held by existing Board members. None of the recent appointments was made under section 106(1)(e).   I am satisfied that the current nomination and appointment process is fair and transparent.
