Ceisteanna ar Reachtaíocht a Gealladh (Atógáil) - Questions on Promised Legislation (Resumed)
Eoghan Murphy (Dublin Bay South, Fine Gael)
I am not aware of the individual planning issue but the Deputy is referring to and I cannot get involved in individual planning decisions. That said, earlier this year, the Government established for the first time in the history of the State the Office of the Planning Regulator. Niall Cussen is that regulator. That is the appropriate body to which the Deputy should relay his concerns, because it can then do an independent investigation of the local authority, of An Bord Pleanála, and of the other aspects of the planning system we have in place.
