Debate opened on planning reform

Sinn Féin MLA for Newry/Armagh and his party’s spokesperson on planning, Cathal Boylan has called on local councillors to make their voices heard in relation to proposals for reform of the local planning announced by the Department of Environment.

Mr Boylan said,

“Local government bodies and local councillors have an opportunity to mould a new planning system which will best suit the rural dwellers of the North.

“The new planning system will be a key function for local Councils and will enable planning to be at the heart of the new councils.

“It is essential that local representatives make their voices heard at each of the events in order to best shape the future of planning.”
