asked the Minister for Local Government why he rejected the appeal of Mr. James Dunne, Morriscastle Strand, Kilmuckridge, County Wexford, against the decision of the local authority to prohibit construction under the Town and Regional Planning Acts without even having the building inspected.
Ceisteanna—Questions. Oral Answers. - County Wexford Building Prohibition.
The appeal was not rejected without having the building inspected. The appeal related to work for which planning permission had not been sought. No plans were lodged by the appellant either with the planning authority or with my Department to show the area of the site or what was involved in the work or how it was proposed to supply water and sewerage services for the building. In the circumstances I disallowed the appeal but the appellant was informed that it was still open to him to submit properly detailed plans to the planning authority together with an application for permission. The building was inspected by an officer of my Department in September, 1963. On the occasion of his inspection, the officer was unable to gain admittance for internal inspection.
