Reply To: Dublin needs this approach
Does anyone know anything about the new high-density regulations recently introduced? Are they being put into action, or is it all a lot of hot air? Personally I think the planning regulations in this country are far too severe, too much attention is paid to self interest groups and the like.
In theory at least, the high-density apartment complex refused planning permission in the city centre will end up being built on a greenfield site in the country because of objections from so-called conscientious pressure groups e.g. An Taisce. In my book this is much worse, the city centre is being protected from development e.g. high-rise, high-density projects, often even though they may be well-designed, at the expense of the countryside. This needs to be remedied soon. What are peoples opinions?
