An entirely avoidable sum of at least €55 million has been wasted on invalidated planning applications across the country over the past 11 years.

This is according to a detailed review of the Irish planning statistics from 2009 to 2020 undertaken by Tom Phillips Associates, planning consultants.

An average of 15 per cent of 55,098 applications lodged during that period were invalidated with some county invalidation rates as high as 34 per cent in any one year.
