ONE of the country's biggest local authorities was last night forced to defend giving the green light for 18 new houses in a community already blighted by two 'ghost' housing estates. Ballyhooly Community Council in north Cork has vowed to fight the planning for the 18 new homes -- granted by Cork County Council -- after warning that local schools, water and sewerage systems were already stretched to breaking point.

I know Ballyhooly Village (5 miles from Fermoy). The village consists of a Primary school / Petrol station with shop / Church / & 3 pubs. BD

As it is, the 3 new estates that are already there look completely out of place for the size of the village.

You can't have a village without one! But God be with the days when they mainly drooled on the bar counter and shouted at the schoolgirls - allowing them to become divilluppers was never going to end happily.

Cork County Council granted way too much planning permission in almost every village why would they stop now? No one should rely on them assess the merits of a development and at least Ballyhooley are going to fight it a lot of other villages didn't.
