Does this mean that the proposed canal/island scheme could be blocked by Treasury?
..hence stall the entire new master plan process?
Also as a side; I note that DDDA hasnt yet published any information re: revising the exixting master plan on its website, seems to me that they are in a hurry to revise thier master plan to force this "island of atlantis" on Dublin,
Lets hope this island with its blind virture and wisdom dissapears under the water together with the Lost Island of Atlantis...
Re the Commercial Court, I wondered about that too. Someone with more knowledge of planning law would have to comment. The funny thing is, the canal is due to cross Treasury land also, so the DDDA will have to do a deal with them too. Again, I imagine, along the lines of, 'we'll increase building height in the 2008 development plan for you, if you let us build our canal (and Island)'.
The master plan gets reviewed every five years so we are due one in 2008 although I understand it won't be finalised until the end of the year.
TBH, I think their website is a load of sloblock, they have not updated their planning application (s25) database in about a year now, so we've no idea what's in the pipeline on that front.
