A Sinn Fein amendment on rural planning will be debated in the Dail this evening, which could remove obstacles for people attempting to get planning permission in rural areas.

 

The amendment would permit local authorities to grant a waste water discharge licence to applicants wanting to built one-off rural houses where the percolation test has failed.

 

Mayo Sinn Fein Senator Rose Conway-Walsh says this would move away from the discharge rule which has prevented many families from building a house in rural areas of the West.
