I will be interesting to see if it will be the wimps or the mega wimps that will prevail in the city planning department with regard to the Beacon Medical co-location plans for the CUH site.
I'll be interested to see what the proposals are for the traffic to come off the Douglas rd - its already congested and when people are allowed park literally on the main road to go in to the spar shop and thereby reduce the road to one lane, you'd hope for a good proposal
Re Beacon, i reckon the city wont ask for Further info given that they apparently told beacon that this was the only site available to them. I reckon it will be granted with conditions and then Bord Pleanala will refuse it. A recent Owen O Callaghan proposal for mahon was asked for Further info to provide a rationale as to why they wanted to build on the particular site and why alternative sites wouldnt be suitable. That would be an interesting exercise in this case. I dont agree that infrastructure and local residents should suffer because of bad planning. Theres absolutely no reason why proper infrastructure and transport cant be put in before granting beacon planning and thereby creating employment.
