Watching This Crowded House on Rte .Some wan on it trying to build on a site , I think in Westmeath . Then the estate agent or local councillor starts going on about “local needs” stipulations . What a load of bollix, never heard of this before . Did a bit of reading and found this from someone in a similar position in Meath years ago
"I’m not from Meath but moved up about 10 years ago (athlumney Area) and the misses has lived there her entire life about 100m from the site and she had to go back 10 years in bank statements, Insurance letters, letters from her schools, work and the church to prove she has lived in the area."
Seems the EU are getting involved in abolishing this .
Anyone else ever come up against this when building a house outside or on the border of Dublin ?
