This is a new thread to blame and shame NIMBY councilors who block home developments in their own constituencies.
It's a thread to expose the selfishness of these NIMBY representatives of nation and to have a list of them all suckers in one place.

Irish families being forced to move to Kildare and West Meath should know what these people do. Homeless families should know too. Such NIMBYs hurt everyone and only profit small amount of similar NIMBYs living around them.

To post here there's no need for much explanation, just post Councillors who block home buildings around their houses.

EXPOSE NIMBY.

So, let's start from the first one, potentially the Master of All NIMBYs, The Minister for Transport, SHANE ROSS.

Ross fighting plans to build 108 homes in his constituency - Independent.ie

Transport Minister Shane Ross has helped block the construction of 45 new homes in south Dublin and is expected to object to another 63 in the coming days.

Among her concerns are apartments overlooking the school and "extra traffic in a quiet residential area".
She said that large greenfield sites such as Cherrywood where thousands of homes are planned are "the way to go".

In his submission on the Kiely's site, known as Union Café, Mr Ross warned it would be "negligent" to bring extra traffic into a "very quiet and peaceful suburb".
"The size and style of this proposed development is completely out of character with the surrounding area," he wrote.

Fine Gael TD Josepha Madigan and the Green Party's Catherine Martin also objected to this development.



BLAME AND SHAME THIS SUCKER.



So what will you do now Mr. Simon Coveney with your 'Rebuilding Ireland' plan?
Will you Fight or will you Flight?

Wish we had a couple of NIMBY councillors in Naas. The road infrastructure in Naas is wholly inadequate for the volumes of traffic it is expected to cater for yet the council is allowing a further 700 houses to be built in The town. This is even before we talk about schools etc. All the council can see is more levies from developers and to hell with everyone else.

In fairness to Ross - on the face of this, this development seems out of scale and character to the area and the entrance seems to be very limited.

But developer probably knows he won't get the full size and both he and Ross will be happy enough when he gets half

45 new homes in South Dublin is outrageous.

They should build 4500 new homes in South Dublin. And build upwards with landscaped green areas, underground parking, new bys stops and play areas. Endless semi d's of ground level plus one floor are inadequate for the number of people who want to live in South Dublin.

Surely Shane Ross should realise that there is enormous market demand for residential living in Dublin ?

Vote Green - make people burn hydrocarbons by having to commute from Carlow everyday.

The GP are hypocrites.

I guess there's a backstory here. The site in question has been earmarked for redevelopment as apartments for about ten years, the pub there deliberately let to go to seed... I presume the developer in question has fallen out of favour...

Being forced to live in Longford is NOT a real solution. Unless there is work in Longford. And lrt's be honedt here. There isn't.

You needn't guess it at all. You can take it as read. Somehow, I suspect the real government - FF - will be for it given the historic ownership.

Dublin South used to be the most vibrant constituency in the country. Now its a shrunken shadow, a nursing home for the aging bourgeoisie.

True. A lot of silver foxes and empty nesters.

In othe countries the Silver foxes retire in warm seaside locations. But in Dublin it seems they are empty nesters. Maybe the answer is purpose built retirement villages with supporting services in places like Tramore, Dunmore East and Wellingtonbridge ?

Except the HSE in the South East is presumably understaffed and the gardai undermanned. So retirees live in South Dublin instead. There is no point in saying that it to be close tp their relatives. Because of house prices their kids are spread a long way distant.

D16A/0465 is the reference number for that one at Oatlands. Couldn't see plans online.

Plenty down in Wexford already. Rosslare Strand is one popular spot.

From what I've heard, one of the issues is that many of the residents of big four and five bedroom houses would happily downsize, but they don't want to downgrade their social status by moving to a less salubrious area. And there are not so many smaller, "respectable" houses in the D14, SCD area. So they're not prepared to sell up when the buying price of a much smaller dwelling that they'd deem "acceptable" is almost the same as the selling price of the larger house they're rattling sound in.

Sneering at location snobbery aside, there is an understandable logic. These larger suburban houses in "good" areas a worth a lot of money. A lot of people would think twice at losing that, even if they don't need the square footage they have.
