Jan 27th Deadline for Submissions on Govt Bill to Prevent Citizens Objections to Bad Planning & Developments

The government is bringing in legislation that will more or less remove your right to object to various types of planning applications and will give free reign to developers and private companies to do as they please. The new rules would require objections only from established interest groups that are in existence at least 3 years and have more than 100 members for that time. Fees will also be far higher. This means if someone wants to put a motorway outside your door and dig a quarry in the field beside you, or build a windfarm outside your front window, a sewage works over the wall, then you have to have known about it somehow three years in advance, have formed an interest group and have 100 members, not 99 or 50 or 20 but 100 !

Friends of the Irish Environment are calling on citizens and citizens group to make their voices heard during the submission period to make our opposition clear to the State. The rights of citizens to access our courts goes back to the Magna Carta.

Submission can be made until January 27, 2020.
Submission site: https://www.housing.gov.ie/housing/public-consultation-general-scheme-housing-and-planning-and-development-bill-2019

Punters are invited to hunt, terrify and dismember foxes in Galway for the day and to celebrate St. Valentines day at a hunt ball with the hunters on Saturday night for 250euro a person. They will have about 75 people out hunting that day. All monies will go to the North Galway hunt.

Please boycott the Westwood Hotel in Galway. Also please send your thoughts on wildlife abuse to both the hunt and the Hotel.

In bitter, thick fog resembling the miasma hanging over the economic abyss that is now Ireland, some 300-400 protesters, yesterday, marched from the Cathedral through Eglington St and Shop Street to the Spanish Arch plaza voicing their anger, contempt and sense of betrayal for a government that has spectacularly lost the trust of its people but like a stinging, dying wasp is still hell-bent on forcing through a budget of unprecedented savagery that saddles and cripples the Irish people with the private gambling debts of rogue banks and a millstone "bailout" of usurious, ruinous interest rates from the IMF and EU. read full story / add a comment
