Farmers ‘do not want housing estates’ on land – Taoiseach

March 15, 2023

Taoiseach Leo Varadkar has told the Dáil that it is “reasonable” for farmers to say “this is my farm. I own this land….and I don’t want to develop it” in relation to the government’s new residential zoned land tax (RZLT).

The RZLT is a new annual tax that will come into force from February next year and is part of the government’s Housing for All Plan.
