first_imgA Donegal mother of two, who was prohibited by the planning authorities from planting a hedge around her Inishowen home, has won a High Court challenge against an Bord Pleanála.Wendy Tweed and her husband Paul Fletcher bought the former Hair O the Dog pub in Quay Street, Moville. The couple had been refurbishing as a home for themselves and their two children aged six and seven.Barrister Michael O’Donnell told the court the couple had been given go-ahead by Donegal County Council to turn the old hotel and pub premises into a three-bed two-storey dwelling.Ms Tweed had then sought additional planning permission for a 4ft high post-and-wire boundary fence and hedge.Mr Justice Charles Meenan had heard that the former pub car park and boundary touched on the shore of Lough Foyle and there had been objections from Foyle and Moville Rowing Club.The Irish Times now reports that An Bord Pleanála has agreed to the quashing of its order prohibiting the erection of the fence.To see the full report see https://www.irishtimes.com/news/crime-and-law/courts/high-court/woman-wins-high-court-challenge-over-hedge-around-home-1.3343192Donegal woman wins High Court challenge to plant hedge around her home was last modified: January 3rd, 2018 by StephenShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window) Tags:donegalhedgeHIGH COURTmovilleWendy Tweedlast_img
