Reduction in the Number of Planning Applications in 2008
The number of planning applications made in the first quarter of 2008 are down by considerable numbers for most planning authorities throughout the country. There are a few exceptions, however, these authorities are dealing with smaller numbers e.g. Limerick City has increased from 83 in 2007 to 90 in 2008 and Waterford City is only slightly down from 87 to 83.
The figures are as follows:
