Thanks to Cork City Councils total incompetence I think it is safe to say; Cork Docklands RIP.
Kite, you'll have to explain yourself on that one, I've had a look at the Further Info required and would have had a much more optimistic view. I'm not an engineer or developer but I dont think there is anything insurmountable there bar changing the mix to more residential, which might be tricky in current downturned market.
The Seveso site is definitely a stall for time by City Council as the developers were simply asked to explain how the Seveso site issue would not affect them. Even more positively, I think the height of the 3 residential towers was agreed in principle with some small few floors knocked off, the retail / office buildings appear to require 1 floor knocked off and the rest of the info seems to be details required of the event centre, noise, traffic, waste management, lots of small detail
The issue will be whether the funding is granted for the new bridge and the further info request seems to hint at that, as the developers were asked for details as to how they would go ahead if the new bridge wasnt built for a while
Now that, is Fianna Fail procrastinating and Cork getting rubbish transport and infrstructure funding as per usual
