We are working on starting an online petition to voice our concerns. This petition will be international – i don’t think the millions of Irish Americans would look too kindly on the terrible treatment we are getting by our own Government. As soon as it is set up we will get back to you. Amanda.

These regulations are an absolute joke. I was planning on building a house this year but I wont be able to afford it now. The whole system is ridiculous, people are under enough pressure trying to build a house and live at the same time. All this will lead to is less people actually building once they get they planning permission as it is nearly impossible to get a mortgage in this country. We would all be better off not working or building and then receive our rent allowance, benefits, medical cards, etc.

Why do we copy everything off UK except for the things that they get right. The government should copy the UK System. Phil

I just wished to drop you an email to say thank you for all your efforts to highlight the difficulty and extra expense that self builds will have to endure when the new regs are active to our own TD's and now the EU.  I have plans to build in 2015 and I have just sent a copy of your TD email to the 5x TD's in Longford /Westmeath and a complaint to the EU as per your draft EU complaint.  Thanks. Andrew

Why is this only coming to light now. We are hoping to self build using direct labour as family members would all be in trades. How is this going to affect us now. I dont want to employ a contractor.This is an absolute disgrace.What next from this absolute shambles of a govt. Adrian
------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------—––--How could our Tds let this go through. Absolutely ridiculous. Sandra

Thank you for fighting for our rights. I am going to send the letters to my local TD and to EU. Declan
---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
All I want to know is can I build my house through direct labour or not? Why can’t they just be honest for once and give us the answer. Diane

Why were we not told about this before. Typical government tries to hide it until it was too late. Seamus

Thank you for all that you are doing. It is nice to see that we are at least not alone. Eimear

How can this government do this to the construction industry. It is bad enough that we can not get enough jobs as it is and they go and come up with this kind of  nonsense.  I am a plasterer and have been working as a plasterer for the past eight years but I do not have any  certificate in plastering. So what am I going to do now? Mark.

Thank you Minister. At least now I don’t have to pay property tax as I can not afford to have a property. Joseph
