Sinn Féin MLA Cathal Boylan has said the long-awaited Planning Review is a missed opportunity for reforming the planning system in the north.
The Newry and Armagh MLA said:
“The long awaited publication of the Planning Review is deeply disappointing.
“Instead of reforming and improving the processing, we have got more stalling, delay and indecision.
“This is a missed opportunity to address the many flaws in the planning system, including slow application processing times.
“Efficient planning can make a massive contribution to delivering more homes, growing the economy and strengthening protections for the environment.”
