An Taisce welcomes the appointment of Henk van der Kamp as the independent planning expert to evaluate the internal Planning Review Report (June 2012). An Taisce is aware of the calibre of Mr van der Kamp and looks forward to meeting him so that we can explain our original complaints, which until now we have been unable to do, as the compilers of the Planning Review Report asked the planning authorities for their side of the argument but never contacted us as to the reasoning behind our complaints.
