DUBLIN County Council’s Central Area committee
last night condemned the “high-handed” behaviour of
the city manager in granting planning permission to a
Â£126m development in the Smithfield area.
An emergency motion agreed last night said the
manager should have addressed the serious concerns
expressed by the local community and councillors at
the Central Area Committee and the HARP
monitoring committee. He also failed to await the
outcome of the Urban Height and Density study
which is due to report shortly.
