Dam I agree with the spirit and broad thrust of your very well made points but in regard to the basics of basic homes for the disspossessed,you must look at the average size of these applications. Typically they range between 180-650 sq m with the average proposal being 240 sq m with a seperate garage of 65 sq m with additional loft space.
I totally agree there is an immense loss of quality of life by cutting yourself off from much of the social progress delivered over the past 50 years.
Until the water quality fines kick in, it is like the person who buys an apartment and then realises that they have a service charge to pay, the same will apply to deficient septic tanks except the fines will be 10,000 plus per breach at the minimum. Lough Corrib is in crisis with urban generated run off and these guidelines will only excerbate the problem, not to mention the Headford Road Roundabout.
It seems that you city folks do not understand rural life, all that people want is a job, a family and a house. There is little demand for complicated facilities. I don’t get the constant attacks on water as ALL THESE HOUSES HAVE SEPTIC TANKS THAT ARE APPROVED BY THE COUNTY COUNCILS. I think it is just begrugery that some people have to pay less for a house than you do.
