    Hello!

    New to this planning lark and I've a couple questions I'm hoping someone more expierenced might be able to answer.

    My wife and I currently are owner/occupiers of a house in Meath. We have recently went sale agreed SPP on a site in her home place in Kerry. Our son is enrolled to start school there in Sep 2023, the plan was always to move back there when he got to school age. Both front line workers and both have transfers to change locations, although wife's will be easier to secure than mine.

    I've done alot of reading on local needs and think we will be ok as lived in the area for 2 years prior to coming to Meath, I'm not from the area but the wife can prove she still has her vote, bank account etc still in the family home address. In addition all her family live within 2km of the site.

    I see alot of people throw out the problem of already owning a home and that you wouldnt fulfil a housing need as a result. Surely owning a house the other side of the country wouldnt fall under this bracket?? We fully intend of moving into the new house once ready and putting this one on the market and we have no problem entering into an agreement of that nature with the council.

    Last issue is there are already 4 houses in a row beside our site. Will a 5th (ours) amount to a ribbon development? The site is quite rural and at least 8-10km from nearest substantial town.

    Really appreciate any advice 👍👍

    If you can prove you're from the area and have reason to relocate to the area then you should be able to satisfy the local needs once your wife can prove she spent 12 years in the area, school records etc. I presume she was brought up in a rural area and the site is close enough to her home.

    The ribbon development is not something I could advise on but it depends if the council consider the area over developed or not.

    A good architect who knows the council and a preplanning meeting is the way to go.

    I'm guessing they will think you are trying to build a holiday home?

    Doesnt sound like you have any hope of saying you have a housing need nor have local needs satisfied - unless you have a reason to live in that exact area. Why can't you live in the local town?
