Another poorly considered proposal for the site behind GF Handel’s on Thomas Street, fronting onto Thomas Court. The scale proposed is excessive and one could only imagine how a bland lump like this would look if constructed. The remainder of the street is low-scale residential and the elevations for the development show just how poorly the proposal integrates with the existing development.

The application, 3786/10, is subject to a request for further information. Thankfully, An Taisce and the DoEHLG are engaged and the Council is asking for a reduced height and a revised elevation. However, it begs the questions: why didn’t the developers have a pre-planning meeting with the Council so that these issues could have been raised earlier. The Planner’s report is online. Its quite detailed.

This site is part of a wider collection of buildings which are of huge importance to the future of Thomas Street. Much of the site is part of Digital Hub.
