I have decided to highlight some issues with the planning process in this area, the lack of enforcement and the use of retrospective planning applications. I have inter-spaced these with a few topical cartoons from my good friend Ian Knox (Irish News cartoonist) from the Sheepland area of Ardglass. 

I have not worked how to do this technically on a web-site yet, but I have started to collate the material here on this page.
