Out of a Parish of 150 properties only 31 bothered to complete and returned the form.  Of those only five households indicated a need to move, either now or within the next five years.  Only two of these were likely to need affordable housing, the others already owned mortgage free properties.  The report on this survey, by the Housing Strategy Officer, Planning and Housing Policy Team.

  1. This application has now been given the Status “Application Permitted”. I contacted the Planning Authority to understand exactly what this means. They replied as follows.

    “Good morning
    ‘Application permitted’ is otherwise known as permission granted.
    I trust you find this of assistance.
