    Interesting planning process:

    Galway City Council reject the proposal zoned ‘RA’ (for recreational and amenity use’,). Send a detailed 4 page report detailing reasons for refusal to Bord Pleanala

    BP's own inspector rejected it. 15 page detailed report with 4 specific reasons why she thought it should be rejected.
    http://www.pleanala.ie/documents/reports/304/R304163.pdf

    The un-elected board decided arragh it'll be grand in 2 paragraphs ....

    Great democratic process we have.

    Surely it's better that what was there, how is it ugly and undemocratic?

    ....and no public money involved.

    Property owners who are given planning permission to build in areas that are affected by rising sea level, given what we know now, will likely have a case to claim against the council for negligence.

    Has anyone ever claim against the council for negligence for there loose planning before?

    I think not


  • Registered Users Posts: 7,733 ✭✭✭saabsaab


    But the council didn't give them planning? Even then it wasn't on the basis of rising sea levels.

    How could someone who chose to apply for planning permission then decide to make a claim against the council if it's granted? Not a chance.

    I suppose if the council granted planning permission for rising sea levels too....

    It's far easier on the brain to hide some posters, though folks will keep quoting their nonsense...

    Several judgments of the Supreme Court would suggest such claims would fail for lack of proximity. That's before we amusingly arrive at the floodgates arguments.

    Ill judgements ?? Brown envelopes ya mean, no different than majority/all county councils in Ireland ... so much corruption in this country

    Got any evidence of the local council being involved in corruption or is this just a baseless rant?

    I believe the ill-advised land purchases refers to land bought for housing for something like €12m, which later turned out to be far less suitable than thought for that purpose and nothings been done with it in a decade. It's been written about in the nationals a lot, there was a big report on it recently on galway bay too, it's been mentioned by many politicians.

    There really is no brown envelope conspiracy behind it, just exactly what another poster called it....a bad purchase that they're now paying for big time.

    Lived in salthill for a very short time last year.
    It's very Stephen King. Possibly due to the circus at the time.

    The Salt bar was good, also the pub with the underground floor, forget it's name, lovely staff. Nice little town. People are so friendly.

    Didn't find much foodie options, had some decent fried chicken at S&P, wasn't too impressed with the Asian food place.

    Don't reply to this

    The manner of posting in this thread has left a lot to be desired

    Everyone needs to improve.

    Going back to the original post - Salthill is like a person who were good looking once but now doesn't seem to care and is letting themselves go.


    Needs a good haircut a shave and some new clothes!

    Make Salthill Great Again, very catchy.

    The three Houses on front of the Banba Hotel were completely gone after Hurricane Debbie as was the road in front of Killorans all the way to Seapoint, there was a CIE bus out in the sea it had been parked there. The lovely little harbour on front of Seapoint was gone and a large house on the Green area at Grattan Road was gone incredible scenes after Debbie went

    There were maintenance men out at Blackrock today power hosing down the slipways etc. I sure it needs doing but nothing done on the benches or paths though. Strange what gets priority?

    Never thought of that but you are spot on. Did it myself one year.

    Wow. Are there any more before/after photos?

    Probably some damage done by tonight's storm. Intense wind.

    Probably not helped by the fact that Met Eireann only issued Orange Warning for Galway and Mayo at 20h00 last night to come into affect for 21h00 --> 01h00 (1h later) City Council caught on the hop as a result.
