Re: Re: Section 140 – Judicial Review
Should section 140 be abolished as it is abusing the planning system?
😮 Absolutely NOT.
Section 140s are abused on a weekly basis by vested interests in Kerry but it is the only safeguard available to elected representatives to stop rouge city managers or other unelected officials from running riot with our planning laws.
Just because some muppets are using the Act to get planning for their extended families in Kerry is no reason to punish responsible Councillors.
These dudes in Kerry will get their comeuppance as they can be personally sued if a party suffers loss due to the grant of planning using a S140 against technical (engineers etc) advice.;)
