Longford last in Planning Applications

It may seem that local engineers and architects are busy with planning but Longford had only 197 applications in the second quarter of 2007. This is less than Leitrim (258) and Roscommon (422) and puts us in last place in the entire country. It appears that Longford builders have less confidence than the rest of the country. Full details are available at the CSO website.
