Well, as I said before, i wouldn’t give much credit to most government plans/ publications , however well intentioned or otherwise and the idle chit chat quoted above does nothing to change that view. The whole exercise in listing certain areas and excluding others is shown, in the article, to be nothing more than the product of a few hours tracing over random o.s. maps with a red marker, to fill a few pages of the development plan.
to give an example – Crecora – a rural area 8 miles from Limerick City – there’s a nice notional red line drawn around what constitutes the village. There has been very few if any new houses built within that area in recent years. However if one looks to an area 2/3 km off that map it is possible to see that in one particular 500m stretch of road applications being processed/ granted for 5/6 one off houses in the last year. Seemingly Crecora is located in a planning pressure area, whatever that means, perhaps it is supposed to be more difficult to build in the area?
A map showing the location of some 3000 one off houses in County LImerick between 2001 and 2003 –
Again, any thoughts?
