Donegal councillors to relax rules for builders
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.
