National Postcode Project Board convenes
The Minister for Communications, Marine and Natural Resources, Noel Dempsey, today re-affirmed his commitment to the introduction of postcodes as he announced the National Postcode Project Board has convened for the first time.
Following the Minister's announcement in May of this year, this group was established with a view to considering the feasibility, design and implementation of a postcode proposal.
Minister Dempsey has asked chair of ComReg, Isolde Goggin, to appoint project managers to design a suitable postcode and to analyse costs.
The project managers will present their proposals to the Postcode Board, with their own recommendations, to the Minister by the end of 2005.
Minister Dempsey said: "Postcodes are a key mechanism that provide competitive advantage and are critical in keeping postal delivery accurate, quick and relevant."
