A very interesting list of questions from DCC.
I’m surprised at the need for some of them – for example it appears that the Applicant never sought to state the case for the ‘exceptional circumstances’ which are a prerequisite to permission for the demolition of Protected Structures – a strange omission – and also downgraded the status of some of the structures from Regional (DCC’c view) to Local.
Not looking good I would think?
Aye- iirc, there was a suspicion in some quarters that the AI questions for Lansdowne were approaching the forensic level, but here it seems the opposite is true- makes the job for DCC much easier. But surely any planning consultant worth his salt would be aware of the provisions regarding the demolition of a PS? Or did they think that DCC would just bend over backwards to accommodate them because of who they are? Surely not…
I can just see it now- “George W Bush? Got him on speed dial. Pope John Paul II? Don’t even need the phone. These DCC boys are a tougher nut to crack, though…”
