Inishowen Councillors have expressed their dissatisfaction with the news that the council plans to scrap proposals for an Inishowen local area plan in favour of a county wide development plan.

When the issue was raised by Councillor Padraig McLoughlainn he was told that because of funding constraints the money was not available.

The county manager did say however that the council as a whole will have an opportunity to decide if resources for the county development plan be diverted for a Inishowen development plan.

This has been rejected by Councillor McLoughlainn who said it was essential that seperate funding be made available for a dedicated Inishowen LAP [podcast]http://www.highlandradio.com/wp-content/uploads/2009/11/pad.mp3[/podcast]
