Supreme Court orders demolition of house that breaches planning laws
The Murrays built the 588sqm house in 2006 at Faughan Hill, Bohermeen, Navan, Meath.
Before building their house, the Murrays applied for permission for a 283sqm dormer bungalow. This was refused. They went ahead anyway and built what a judge describe as an “imposing” structure nearly double that size without planning permission. Plumber, Michael Murray, and his wife Rose, have a year to comply with the court’s order.
Meath Co Council, which brought the case against them, said it would not apply for legal costs against them if the house is demolished.
