Sense of Place
A History of Irish PlanningeBook - 2014
The modern Irish planning system was introduced on October 1, 1964, when the Local Government (Planning and Development) Act, 1963 came into force "to make provision, in the interests of the common good, for the proper planning and development of cities, towns and other areas." Given the popular image of a post Celtic Tiger landscape haunted by ghost estates, ongoing efforts to address the notoriety of some public housing schemes, and the fall-out from a planning corruption tribunal which spanned 15 years, the time is ripe for reflection and analysis on the successes and failures of the Irish planning system. This book will trace the evolution of land use planning in Ireland, and the social, environmental, and economic problems and opportunities that gave rise to it.
