Laois planning applications more than double

The number of planning applications to Laois County Council more than doubled for the month of January, compared to January 2016.

There were 33 valid applications this year in the first month, compared to 16 in 2016.

“That is an increase of over double,” noted the CEO John Mulholland.

The number of applications has been rising in Laois over the past year as housing construction recovers.
