Farnham plan appealed

AN TAISCE has appealed a proposal by Derrygid Ltd for 52 houses at Farnham Demesne, Co Cavan.

It says the proposal would contravene the provision of the Granada Convention, the European Landscape Convention and the Florence charter with regard to historic landscapes and says the parkland is an inextricable part of Farnham's character. It says the development capacity of the estate "has already been exceeded".

An appeal by Paddock Residents Association at Farnham says: "We would submit that these, as yet unoccupied houses, do not appear to meet any identifiable need for housing in a rural area."
