FG/Labour Gov- List of New & Abolished Quangos


Ordnance Survey + Land Registry to be subsumed into property registration ( ? ) go figure , there is weird empire building going on there.


Duisigh - Have you heard updated info on this?

Just checked pg 1 and it appears on the list of Candidate Bodies for Critical Review by end June 2012

This tranche was due for originally decision by 30 June 2012. A decision was finally announced on Oct 31st 2012.

  1. (Net No. abolished = 2) Merge the Valuation Office, the Property Registration Authority and Ordnance Survey. [Decision: Due to be implemented by 31 Dec 2013]

Edit: Just googled it and found this Report from June 2012

Possible new quango required? Who will enforce it?


Pfft, the CIF of course.


Oh right. That’s that sorted so :angry:



But the background is more to do with the whole massive state and its financial arm (the banks) fuc*ing around with house prices and allowing yearly double digit increases in cost of property. This being the (Useless and corruption inducting (see Mahon tribunal)) Planning Acts and the fairly useless Building Regulations and mostly uselss Building Control Regulations under the Building Control Acts.

Anyhow, the big deal is that there will be new Building Control Regulations coming into play on 1st March 2014.

I conservatively estimate that this may place an extra cost burden of about 5,000 to 10,000 euros on your average small useless semi-detached house building cost or about the guts of 10,000 on a decent reasonable sized (160m2) detached family home.

Get started by 1st March 2014 to avoid these costs.

That means getting your planning application in now to the most useless tribe of public servants that exists within the statist nation that has become Direland.
