I recently received planning permission from my local county council on the family land. I should be delighted with this news both unfortunately I have no doubt that it will be appealed to An Bord Pleanala as I have been down this road once before. The appeal is of a personal nature and is purely an attempt to delay or even prevent my proposed development been granted permission. I know that I can fight for the case to be dismissed on vexatious and frivolous grounds but this is so difficult to prove. Looking at An Bord Pleanala's statistics recently do nothing for my confidence in receiving planning anyhow . Isn't it a disgrace that persons can abuse the planning appeal system to satisfy other agendas that are not planning related at all.
Looking for words of advice or even just encouragement.
