Planning and Development Bill 2023: Report Stage (Resumed) (12 Jun 2024)

Alan Dillon: Let me start by just outlining again the key aim of the Bill, which is to introduce more consistency, clarity and certainty to the planning system. That is core to what we are actually doing here and what we have done over the past six months. The Bill is looking to the future; it is certainly not dealing with the past. Within that, it is really important that we have consistency across...

Seán Ó Fearghaíl: The time is up, I am sorry.

Planning and Development Bill 2023: Report Stage (Resumed) (12 Jun 2024)

Alan Dillon: I will conclude. We find this section to be sufficient as currently drafted and cannot accept the amendments.

Planning and Development Bill 2023: Report Stage (Resumed) (12 Jun 2024)

Eoin Ó Broin: I thank the Minister of State for his reply. Part of the problem with this section of the Bill and the rationale for this group of amendments is that it is not just the Opposition who are raising very real concerns with the way in which the planning policy statement architecture has been put in place; these concerns are also being raised by professional planners and the people who make...

Planning and Development Bill 2023: Report Stage (Resumed) (12 Jun 2024)

Seán Ó Fearghaíl: Would anyone else like to come in?

Planning and Development Bill 2023: Report Stage (Resumed) (12 Jun 2024)

Richard Boyd Barrett: We have had a pretty wide-ranging discussion on these amendments dealing with the national planning statement. An amendment I have relates to some of the issues that were raised which I think should be included in any of these, whether it is national planning statements or the frameworks. I have consistently tried to table amendments throughout the Bill on the need to promote the provision...

Planning and Development Bill 2023: Report Stage (Resumed) (12 Jun 2024)

Jennifer Murnane O'Connor: I will talk about the planning guidelines in general and about issues that others have brought up. In the past year, a great number of young people in Carlow have come to me asking about the beautiful new timber cabin homes. As they cannot get mortgages, they are now looking at these lovely new cabins. Some of them have lovely sites and should be able to get planning permission. Some of...

Planning and Development Bill 2023: Report Stage (Resumed) (12 Jun 2024)

Seán Ó Fearghaíl: I apologise to Deputy Ó Snodaigh. I should have called him before now. I thought I had.

Planning and Development Bill 2023: Report Stage (Resumed) (12 Jun 2024)

Aengus Ó Snodaigh: I have some comments on this grouping. I have spoken on all of the other groupings as well because I have submitted quite a lot of amendments that deal with the Irish language. These relate to the national planning statement and seek to ensure that, in drawing the statement up, due regard is given to the Irish language and the cultural and linguistic heritage of Gaeltacht areas. I have...

Planning and Development Bill 2023: Report Stage (Resumed) (12 Jun 2024)

Danny Healy-Rae: I was always brought up to mean what I say or say what I mean. There are so many contradictions in these amendments proposed by Members. Some of the amendments are good and some are terrible. Both kinds have been tabled by the same Members. We have been promised for years now, since I was elected in 2016, that the planning framework guidelines would be put in place to help planning and...

Planning and Development Bill 2023: Report Stage (Resumed) (12 Jun 2024)

Mattie McGrath: We have a Bill of 750 or 800 pages we can hardly lift. Indeed, there is also a list of amendments, many of them tabled by the Minister. We are not operating in a silo here. I am speaking to amendments No. 195 and 196 in the group, in addition to other related ones. We are not operating in a silo. We have a housing crisis. We have a crisis with people emigrating. We have a shortage of...

Planning and Development Bill 2023: Report Stage (Resumed) (12 Jun 2024)

Michael Collins: I would like to speak to the section of the Bill relating to the Minister's control over county development plans and having the final say. I have serious concerns about that. Councillors are elected, and I wish every councillor who was elected in the past week the very best going forward. The councillors who are elected should have the final say as to how a county development plan is put...

Seán Ó Fearghaíl: Members need to attend to the subject matter of the amendments on Report Stage, but so be it.

Planning and Development Bill 2023: Report Stage (Resumed) (12 Jun 2024)

Cian O'Callaghan: In speaking to this group of amendments, I have concerns, in general, that the Bill will be enacted with major errors and that will have an impact on people who need to be able to access housing that is affordable, on communities that are being developed without the facilities and the amenities they need, and on general well-being. I have raised repeatedly on Committee Stage and on Report...

Planning and Development Bill 2023: Report Stage (Resumed) (12 Jun 2024)

Michael Healy-Rae: I was actually so anxious yesterday about this section we are heading into now that I was inclined to leapfrog because I wanted to come to it. It all comes back to what people are going to see from the outside looking in at what exactly is trying to be achieved in this section. It could be private individuals, whether they want to build a house for themselves in an urban or, more...

Planning and Development Bill 2023: Report Stage (Resumed) (12 Jun 2024)

Eoin Ó Broin: I move amendment No. 185: In page 68, to delete lines 7 to 15 and substitute the following: “(5) Where after the Government has completed a review under section 22, it shall seek the approval of both Houses of the Oireachtas for the revised or new National Planning Framework.
