Re: Re: Does Kerry have a planning system?
Did anyone see the article in Today’s Irish Times on the 4,500 applications submitted for one off houses in Kerry since this service was introduced. Appaerntly the 4,500 houses are a multiple of the number of ‘rural housing needs’ for the next decade. The article also went on to display the costs of these houses on the Kerry County Council Budget.
It is obvious that the hue and cry raised by particular political elements had little to do with a few hard luck cases but a lot more to do with selling sites with FPP to tourists. Current site values in the prime-r areas of South Kerry with the benefit of FPP now exceed 350k
