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

Yesterday afternoon, Shell security personnel watched helplessly from their compound as Shell to Sea supporters overturned bog tracks that were laid to enable heavy machinery to build the next stage of the Corrib gas pipeline.

Since Tuesday Shell has been trying to work on this most controversial part of their project, despite the fact that a judicial review of the Bord Pleanala permission for it is due this week. The campaigners from all over the country displaced more than 30ft of bog tracks.

On Saturday 9th April, we'll be travelling to Ballina, Co. Mayo, to raise awareness about our Charles River (and Ovagen) campaign.

Support is urgently needed to help this campaign continue, so we are hoping this trip will aid us in gaining new members among the local community there. An information table will be set up in the town, and we will spread out leafleting in different areas as well.

Last night and this morning, Shell were blocked from accessing their newly created compound in Aughoose for 16 hours after a protester locked on underneath an IRMS security van that was blocking the entrance. Members of the local community and Rossport Solidarity Camp kept vigil throughout the night, worried that IRMS might try to use similar violence to the night that Willie Corduff was beaten up while under a lorry at the Glengad compound in 2009. read full story / add a comment
