Development Plan Rezonings: The Political Pressures
|Title:||Development Plan Rezonings: The Political Pressures||Authors:||Komito, Lee||Permanent link:||http://hdl.handle.net/10197/10254||Date:||Jan-1983||Online since:||2019-05-01T11:24:11Z||Abstract:||Rezonings and section four motions have made planning an issue for public discussion, media publicity, and professional conferences, but debates have tended to focus on planning problems, such as proper land use, future rezoning requirements, financing local services, and so on. Rezonings are not so much a planning problem, as a political problem. The real issues are the political pressures behind planning decisions and the role of community opinion in determining planning policy. In this context, politicians are not necessarily villains; they too are victims of the Irish political system and voter's expectations.||Type of material:||Conference Publication||Publisher:||Resource and Environmental Policy Centre, University College Dublin||Start page:||293||End page:||302||Keywords:||Rezonings; Land planning decisions; Ireland||Language:||en||Status of Item:||Not peer reviewed||Is part of:||Blackwell, J., Convery, F.J.
