Planning and Development (Amendment) Bill 2016: Report Stage (Resumed) and Final Stage
I outlined our position on the amendment but I am not sure if Members want me to go back over it or not. I was dealing with amendments Nos. 93 to 96, inclusive, and I read it quite fast. Do Members want me to go back over it or to move on?
Great. So Members are in agreement with this? I will clarify a matter on amendment No. 92. We had discussed it and I was meant to move it to vote on it but I withdrew it by mistake. I will come back in with it in the Seanad. Members are all happy with it but I mention it in case there is confusion on it. I withdrew the wrong amendment by mistake. We are not allowed to discuss it again here. It has to come in again in the Seanad.
It is fine. We can do it in the Seanad. I am just letting Members know in case they get confused with me afterwards. I was meant to withdraw amendment No. 97 and I withdrew amendment No. 92. We discussed it with the Clerk. I can bring it back in in the Seanad. It was an amendment to an amendment which Deputies were happy enough with when it was discussed. We can raise it again.
I move amendment No. 94:
In page 53, between lines 19 and 20, to insert the following:
“Amendment of section 7 (requests to Board after consultation meeting has been held) of Act of 2016
27.Section 7(3) of the Act of 2016 is repealed.”.
I move amendment No. 95:
In page 53, to delete line 23 and substitute the following:“(a) in subsection (1)—(i) by substituting “plan, or” for “plan, and” in paragraph (a)(iv)(I), and
(ii) by substituting “appropriate authority” for “prescribed authority” in paragraph (c),
I move amendment No. 96:
In page 53, between lines 25 and 26, to insert the following:
“Amendment of section 10 (supplemental provisions to section 9) of Act of 2016
28. (1) Section 10 of the Act of 2016 is amended in subsection (2) by substituting the following for paragraph (a):“(a) The Board shall publish on its website both a notice and a copy of a decision under section 9.”.(2) This section comes into operation upon the passing of this Act.”.
