Local TD calls for review of An Bord Pleanala

Deputy Michael Fitzmaurice

Galway Bay fm newsroom – A Galway-Roscommon TD has called for an urgent review of An Bord Pleanala over unacceptable delays on major infrastructure projects.
Deputy Michael Fitzmaurice said Galway Port is a prime example, having been held up for over three years by the slow pace of decision-making at the statutory body.
He said a clear picture is emerging internationally that it’s very difficult to secure planning permission to develop business ventures in Ireland.
Independent Deputy Fitzmaurice said it’s totally unacceptable for major investment projects and potential jobs to be tied up by red tape.
