Paul Melia: Children with crayons would have made better planners

THE sorry rezoning mess alone is reason enough to turf most of the country's city and county councillors out on their ear come the next election.
Every serving politican who calls looking for a vote should be quizzed in great detail about their zoning decisions because it is these people who have left us with a multi-billion euro mess that will take years to sort out. Toddlers with maps and coloured pencils could have made a better fist of proper planning.
Councillors essentially just declared everywhere suitable for housing. No political party is immune from criticism. They were all at it.
