Press Release – Planning & Development Bill (No2) 2022

Planning & Development Bill

Press release ‘The Planning & Development Bill (No2) 2022, withdrawn from TRIS

Release Date :- 21/10/22 @ 4pm

The Irish Self Catering Federation welcomes today’s announcement from the Department of Housing indicating that they will be withdrawing ‘The Planning & Development Bill (no 2) 2022’.

The ISCF has negotiated and fought tirelessly in recent months with the relevant bodies to highlight the detrimental effect that the introduction of this bill would have on the Irish tourism industry and the 6,500 member properties they represent. Further to a national roadshow of public meetings on the issue in ten locations across the country, 17th – 27th October 2022, ISCF Chair Máire Ní Mhurchú sees this as a win for the people who are turning out in large numbers to voice their concerns. The Federation will continue to fight to protect the rights of holiday homeowners across Ireland and implores policymakers to engage in meaningful dialogue with the Federation on any possible future legislation.

The Federation now requests that guidelines for planners & owners of Self-Catering properties in RPZs be compiled. This is in order that the Self-Catering stock can be protected for the 2023 season. This is particularly important in the current climate where there is a substantial amount of hotel bed stock off the market.

The next roadshow meeting takes place at the Hyatt Centric, Dublin on Monday 24th of October 2022 at 2 pm.

Open to all and free to attend.

The cottage is no longer for rent due to RPZ legislation

Chairperson –  Máire Ní Mhurchú.
