Joint Oireachtas Committee on Housing, Planning and Local Government: Review and Consolidation of Planning Legislation: Department of Housing, Local Government and Heritage (Resumed) (12 Jul 2022)

Eoin Ó Broin: I thank Ms Graham and her team for coming before the committee again. There will be a confidence debate in the Dáil Chamber shortly, so I will have to leave after my contribution, for which I apologise. I want to take a step back for a second. It is often expressed to us is that the State has a poor record in the transposition of EU environmental law across a range of areas...

Joint Oireachtas Committee on Housing, Planning and Local Government: Review and Consolidation of Planning Legislation: Department of Housing, Local Government and Heritage (Resumed) (12 Jul 2022)

Eoin Ó Broin: A note to the committee would be very useful. Without overburdening Ms Graham, could that note include an indicative list of where there have been those notices, infringements or enforcement, as well as costs to date? That would be useful for the purposes of this, if the information is available. The second point relates to both EIA directives and our obligations under the Aarhus...

Joint Oireachtas Committee on Housing, Planning and Local Government: Review and Consolidation of Planning Legislation: Department of Housing, Local Government and Heritage (Resumed) (12 Jul 2022)

Eoin Ó Broin: One of the most important areas of EU environmental law is marine protected areas, MPAs, and we are eagerly awaiting the legislation on that. Given the very considerable body of work being undertaken by the Department's staff and the Attorney General's staff, which a colleague of Ms Graham's suggested in a briefing to us yesterday would not be concluded for another six months, how is that...

Eoin Ó Broin: It would be nice if the Minister spoke to the amendment.

Remediation of Dwellings Damaged By the Use of Defective Concrete Blocks Bill 2022: Committee Stage (Resumed) and Remaining Stages (6 Jul 2022)

Eoin Ó Broin: The Minister made a claim that this scheme will provide 100% redress for homeowners. That is not true on the basis of the current framing of the scheme. That is the case because the costings underpinning the scheme, on the basis of the legislation in front of us, were made by the SCSI in January, and the terms of reference were made by the Minister and the Department, not the SCSI. Unless...

The Minister finished off with respect to foundations. The problem is that the NSAI will not conclude that work until the first or second quarter of next year. That is...

Remediation of Dwellings Damaged By the Use of Defective Concrete Blocks Bill 2022: Committee Stage (6 Jul 2022)

Eoin Ó Broin: I move amendment No. 7: In page 6, to delete line 24 and substitute the following: “ “dwelling” means any property prescribed as such by the Minister by way of regulations;”. This is another one of those amendments that is of a technical nature. It inserts into the definitions section a different definition of "dwelling". One of the many concerns that...

Committee members did everything we could to ensure some level of scrutiny of the...

Planning and Development (Amendment) (No. 2) Bill 2022: Second Stage (6 Jul 2022)

Eoin Ó Broin: I thank the Minister for his opening remarks. Despite the rather technical and dry nature of this legislation, it is important to remind the House that it has the potential to have profound impacts on the lives of entire communities. We have spoken previously, when we dealt with the predecessor to this legislation and the general scheme of this Bill, about Derrybrien. It is probably one of...
