You are right. As far as I can see the only criterion for building in Rushbrooke is, are you near a main sewer and a water main. After that you can get away with any old crap, just once you pay up your fees and of course a few grand to connected to water and sewerage… to Cobh TC.
As I understood it though, it was a deliberate policy of Cork Co Co. Villages in Cork traditionally had a clustered effect, so they wanted that in new developments. The problem is that it doesn’t give any respect to towns that have developed differently to this pattern.
I understand that they have issues with this in Courtmacsherry also, where a clustered development of holiday houses were built at the end of the village, while the village itself is generally developed along the contour of the hill and waterfront.
