Utilising a political economy approach, this paper analyses recent planning legislative change in the Republic of Ireland. The paper argues that changes in planning legislation can be interpreted within a broader agenda of entrepreneurial planning within the Irish State. In critiquing recent change, the paper highlights three key issues: (1) the state, through legislation, facilities development capital over the interests of the general population; (2) entrepreneurial planning approaches can be traced to formal legislative change; (3) recent legislative change has been designed specifically to reduce democracy in the planning process. The findings support the assertion that planning legislation facilities predominantly the elite interest groups in society over those of the 'common good'.||Funding Details:||Not applicable||Type of material:||Journal Article||Publisher:||Liverpool University Press||Journal:||Town Planning Review||Volume:||82||Issue:||6||Start page:||639||End page:||668||Copyright (published version):||2011 Liverpool University Press||Keywords:||Marxist political economy; Planning law; Entreprenuerial planning; Power||Subject LCSH:||Marxian economics
