New chair for An Bord Pleanála

The head of the Environmental Protection Agency was appointed as incoming chair of An Bord Pleanála yesterday.

Dr Mary Kelly is to leave her role as director general of the agency at the end of the summer. She will replace John O’Connor, who is retiring.

Minister for the Environment Phil Hogan said Dr Kelly’s “experience in refocusing and repositioning” the agency as a strong voice for the environment would be an “enormous asset to her” in leading the board.
