Cork councillors seek test case against An Bord Pleanála to prevent planning permission for homes
Councillors are seeking a test case to be taken against An Bord Pleanála to prevent it from granting planning permission for hundreds of houses, as they claim it will swamp a village which hasn't the infrastructure to cope. Councillors in Co Cork who spent months preparing Local Area Plans (LAPs) for the future development of towns and villages, but they will prove a useless exercise if An Bord Pleanála is allowed to overrule them. They want to take a test case against the planning board on behalf of the residents of Glounthaune, 10kms east of Cork city.
