Petition to allow rural planning to continue in Mayo - 30 signed
Rural planning throughout the vast majority of Mayo is under threat due to a recommendation from the Office of the Planning REgulator. If carried, it will render most of the county impossible to obtain planning.
We, the undersigned, call on the Minister for State Peter Burke at the department of Housing, Local Government and Heritage to allow rural planning to continue in Mayo.
We wish the government to acknowledge the following and allow rural planning applications to be considered in the Mayo County Development Plan 2022 - 2028:
- Rural development plays a significant role in alleviating the housing crisis.
- Rural dwelling is essential to maintain a vibrant rural community.
- Sons and daughters should be permitted the opportunity to build on the family farm if they so wish.
- The necessity of rural development to maintain and support intergenerational family farming.
