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

"Ni h-aon ualach trom i an fhoghlaim."

Gan dabht ar domhain ta ne h-aiseanna oideachais ata ar fail sa tir seo ar fheabhas ar fad agus da reir sin, ta an t-aos og an-foghlamtha ar fad i reim fairsing abhar - cuntasaiocht, teicneolaiocht, dli, adhmadoireacht.

Go mion minic ceapaim fein tar eis mo shaol a chaitheamh mar acaduil ag spreagadh daoine oga, go bhfuil an duine ata oilte i gceird agus ag obair sa limisteir sin ar fad nios sona ina shaol agus nios stuama na an duine a chaitheann a lan ama ag treabhadh tri figuiri agus litreacha in oifigi.

Ni he an stor airgid ag deireadh an lae an rud is tabhachtai ach an sasamh a bhaineann duine as a chuid oibre.

Molaim go ndeanfai iarracht cuid de na sean-ceirdeanna ata caillte le blianta a thabhairt arais aris ar sli eigin agus cuid de na daoine oga a oiliunt ins na ceirdeanna sin. Ceapaim go mbeadh tioncar an-mhaith aige seo ar aos og na tire. read full story / add a comment
