Reply To: Does Kerry have a planning system?
I know what you mean Graham,
I never expected 95% Joke/Chaos, albiet from a small sample I think most professionals are annoyed that they slave away for hours to get all the angles covered in pursuit of quality when in other places all that is required is a nod and a wink.
I am not so sure about the results in Killarney being a direct polar opposite from these however. I am absolutely sure that not everyone who sought councillor assistance in relation to planning received it. I would say it was more a case of a few ‘freinds being looked after’. Whilst everyone must live with devalued visual amaenity and blatent traffic hazards.
There is also a local affinity with local heritage buildings, everyone loves to talk about how important their area is on the basis of particular buildings. This is particularly accentuated when the buildings represent ‘industrial heritage’.
