Re: Re: retention – help!
Yes.You’re spot on. However, what has transpired since I received the letter is that the proceedings have been struck out and the Enforcement Notice is no longer applicable, even though the proceedings were being brought against an unauthorised development partially constructed some 18 months ago.
The applicants applied for retention and although a decision to grant conditional permission was returned the LA’s decision was appealed and subsequently a decision to amend the conditional permission resulted from An Bord pleanala.
What is more confusing is that the application that the proceedings were issued against has no bearing on the retention application as it was a completely different planning reference number.
I am really wondering if the LA got it completelly wrong here?
Can anyone add to this by way of explanation please?
