    Abstract

    In this article I discuss the opportunities for mediation and neutral facilitation in the Irish town planning and environmental systems. I examine the shortcomings of the existing system. I show how the system inhibits the settling of disputes by consent. I examine the public consultation process and the opportunities for the mediator in facilitating a fairer outcome. I make reference to the planning system of other countries where mediation has been introduced. I draw on the studies and reports which have been prepared by our nearest neighbour the U.K. I make suggestions for changing the system and tell how C.I.Arb. is actively engaged in the development and promotion of mediation in the Irish planning and environmental systems.
