"This is an ill-conceived, ill-thought-out, cheap attempt to make a big profit, which is not in the interest of the local residents, not in the interest of the city and not in the interest of planning," Mr Lacey said.
I can confirm that Cllr Lacey is in favour however of the Clarence redevelopment. And he;s one of the good ones, I believe. It seems councillors, even in Dublin City, are more concerned with grandstanding against developers rather than engage in any sort of rational planning. Like it's been said, there are pros and cons, but with the Burlo closing and Jurys et al about to go for years, maybe D4 could take it. NoG must be apofuckingplectic. Never mind that Doolan fella - he;s off his head.
