Donegal councillors to relax rules for builders

http://buckplanning.blogspot.com/2007/06/donegal-councillors-to-relax-rules-for.html
Councillors have proposed significant changes to the Donegal county development plan in order to relax building restrictions in favour of developers.

Is this good or bad, I don't know. But, this line makes me wonder:

Monday's meeting between councillors and planners was held behind closed doors and the policy on urban housing was the main topic.

It's in the developers interests to be able to build & sell more homes. Closed door meetings without the public present doesn't seem to me to represent the interest of all of the public.
