    Unless specified in planning regulations, a change of use will require planning permission. For example, change of use from shop to restaurant requires planning permission as it's a material change of use.

    What do you mean 'material change of user'? It could be interpreted as plain auld racism
    You can interpret it any way you want but it appears that this change of user appears to have been exempted from challenge under the Planning regulatory regime as the OP points out. Clearly the Government are determined to narrow the scope for people in the relevant areas from raising their concerns - so much for the decline in democracy and accountability.

    Not sure about your second statement - it may be correct if they all come under change of user review and appeal of which seems to have been excluded under the amending legislation. Perhaps someone with planning or legal expertise could comment?

The circular from the Department states:



    This seems to be removing your right per the normal planning application process to object, thereby exercising your democratic right to protect your residential amenity. What say p.ie to this trampling of your rights at the behest of the 'open gates' lobby?

    The planning law to block asylum centres was only ever used in South Dublin.

    I consider it my duty as a citizen of this State to protect those who can't defend themselves.
    What makes you think they cannot defend themselves - you mysogonist!
