Petition to allow rural planning to continue in Mayo - 40 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:

The Irish political system is radically broken

In Ireland the vast majority of elected representatives put a finger in the air to check which way the political wind is blowing. They have one eye on their leaders – seeking brownie points – and another eye keeping their seat safe. If elected reps shut up and do as they’re told, they are promoted; if they stand up for what they believe in, they are demoted. No wonder we have the political class we have. No wonder one point one billion euro is being buried in a hole under the National Children’s Hospital and that Stormont is in stalemate.

Throughout Ireland, many people are now afraid to say what they feel, many are afraid to respectfully engage on a range of different topics. Many feel there is a new censorship and a new political correctness in Ireland, that opposition to the establishment is being deleted.

Respectful opposition is not the enemy. Respectful opposition is a critical element of a functional democracy. Aontú will have the backbone to stand up, without fear, for you.
