Reply To: Citywest : Mansfield’s giant heap of crap
I suppose if its being rezoned as part of the new Development Plan then it is open to comment from all members of the public but will anyone out there be interested enough to disagree with the Council. I am sure the councillors will vote through the rezoning as there are obvious economic considerations here regardless of whether the actual building is crap or not. A conference centre would be a mojor coup for South Dublin. Can an Bord Pleanala continue to refuse planning permission even after the Develoment Plan has been altered? Can the Government step in and over rule the County Council? Highly unlikely with Martin Cullen at the helm, though interestingly John O’Donoghue who is currently responsible for the national conference centre plan (he’ll be bringing proposals to cabinet ‘shortly’, with the next ‘two months’, soon, etc) is often touted to take over Environment in the coming reshuffle.
