”It was not Councillors who made decisions on Planning Applications.” Please ! It was the Councillors who rezoned the land in swathes (usually against the recommendation of the Forward Planners) & thereby tied the hands of Development Control and An Bord Pleanala. By the same token the blanket term ‘Planners’ in this context also covers Engineers and other associated professionals who worked as Planners in many Local Authorities without any formal training or qualificiaton in purely planning matters. County Managers I would accept were often remiss and at the height of the boom seemed more pre-occupied with the Authority’s rates base and development contributions than they were with ‘proper planning and sustainable development.’
