You will then no doubt not face water charges which if equitable will be based on consumption; there are however very many instances where local authorities have substantial bills to remediate water courses where septic tanks are defective.

A good reason to ban one off houses they encourage excessive car use which degrades the road network.

Which if you recycle suffciently and store non-compostible waste should be cheaper than urban based bin charges.

It must have been all the cement trucks delivering the constructionmaterials required to build all the one off houses built over the past decade. Spending on non-national roads was running at €300m per year up to 2007
it would appear the Healy Raes got hoodwinked if the Ring of Kerry can't have a resurface.
Spending on School buses exploded from €60m a year in 1999 to €192m in 2009
; the decade of the one off house has left yet another cost.
