The Action Plan for Housing.

Exactly.

People in houses objecting to others getting houses while at the same time complaining to politicians why their kids cannot even find a place to live.

Considering whats coming to light in the planning board atm it seems the Irish planning process is still trapped in Ray Burke mode.

Not only is our pal Hyde from Little Island under investigation but it seems another member of the board has been voting decisions in her neighbourhood.

People in ballyphehane are objecting to a 3 storey development on the old manhattan site, the place is an eyesore but people say a 3 storey development
would be out of character with the area, idiots,
There's a bungalow next to the site, which is very compact for the amount of units proposed for it which I think is 26.

I just love simplistic solutions to complex problems:

How many of them are in probate?
How many of them have their owners in nursing homes?
How many of them are empty due to legal disputes.
How many of them are owned/re-possessed by the banks?
How many of them have structural issues?
How many of them are owned by the local authority?
How many of them have subsidence issues?
How many of them have asbestos/pyrite etc?
How many of them have their owners living abroad?
How many building contractors/Labourers are available?
How much will it cost assuming no issues like the above?
^Rattled.

The truth hurts.

Are you advocating leaving all those potential homes rot?

Mr.Hyde is from Glounthane.

It is all coming crashing down

As usual you draw the wrong conclusion.

No biggie.
Your answer to the valid point about derelict properties is to try and make out that they can't be brought back into use, but it doesn't end there, a more competent government than the present one would at least attempt to deal with the issues preventing them from becoming viable homes, they can be part of the answer, like it or not.

As for sneering at people's objections to new developments, each one should be taken on it's individual merits, but you prefer to label all objectors as nimbys and cranks.

Do you really think that people living near the Manhattan like having it as an empty eyesore? Of course they don't, that doesn't mean they will automatically accept any plans put forward for its development.

Had a half share in a yacht with good old Simo.


This story is huge and bizarrely doesnt seem to be as 'sexy' as turf.

For those that have missed it Paul Hyde is the deputy chairman of the planning board. Its looking like Paul has been getting hands on with decisions for family members.
