Waterford county planners are making their own rules now and ignoring everyone including the DOE legislation.
Here are a few proven examples;
You can have an entrance now to your site with no sightlines whatsoever.
You can get retention for an extra floor in your house, without having it shown on the drawings or even mentioning it.
You are called vexatious if you complain about a neighbours perculation that is seeping into your land.
They impose conditions that knowingly cannot be complied with.
They will ignore information brought to their attention regarding misleading and falsified drawings, and carry on regardless with the application, instead of making the applicant apply again, like all other councils.
Is there anybody out there that has had planning turned down because of poor sightlines or any of these issues. This can`t be the only case in Waterford.
