Department of Housing, Planning, and Local Government
1054. To ask the Minister for Housing, Planning, and Local Government if his attention has been drawn to a judicial review (details supplied) in April 2020 of a planning decision made by An Bord Pleanála; if so, his plans to make changes to the planning process or planning legislation; and if he will make a statement on the matter. [10663/20]
I am aware of the judicial review proceedings to which the Question refers, which is a High Court judgment delivered on 24 April 2020. It should be noted that I, as Minister for Housing, Planning and Local Government, was not a party to the case concerned.
There are no plans at present to amend planning legislation in respect of this case. As this matter is still subject to ongoing legal proceedings, it would no be appropriate for me to comment further.
