Leinster House, Dublin 2.
Sinn Fein Spokesperson on Housing Eoin O Broin TD launching to the media on the plinth a bill which would ensure that the past bad building by rogue developers would be considered when any new planning permissions are decided.
Deputy O’Broin said:
“We have seen how negligence or failure to build to an adequate standard has affected thousands of homeowners across the state.
“From Priory Hall, the Leinster pyrite defects, the pyrite and mica defective block scandal, fire safety and other structural defects in apartments and duplexes and dodgy home extensions, homeowners have been left questioning how these homes were allowed to be built in the first place.
“This bill is a small but important measure to put a stop to rogue builders with a record of bad building by enabling local councils and An Bord Pleanala to say no.”
