The penny dropped for me on that one when the list of Councillors was put up.
I don’t think I have ever seen anything as petty in my life
There were valid arguments both ways on whether a good contemporary design should have replaced a listed the building at that spot.
But the fact that it wasn’t listed when the application was lodged or even at an advanced pre-planning was grossly unfair.
The only time to effect changes in listing are at the making of a development plan, except in the most extreme of circumstances. Which didn’t exist in the Sligo case.
If something similar happened to me away from home, I would have thought I had entered the Twilight Zone.
