take, for example.
in 2008 there were 59,154 planning applications across the country. 3% of this is 1774
of these, however, only 8,291 were of a non domestic or agricultural nature
Let’s assume that AT object to 1% of the domestic schemes (I’m probably being generous) that means that 1200 of the objections are of the non-domestic type or – aren’t statistics great – that AT object to 14% of commercial schemes. This figure would be more in keeping with the experiences of archiects in that field
Err.. that 3% (and where does it come from?) figure is not necessarily all objections. Speaking for Limerick, we made I would say less than half a dozen submissions on planning applications each year over the last 4/5 years. And not all of those were objecting to the developments but also consisted of submissions commending some aspects of developments and suggesting ways in which the application could be made better.
