Yes – I’m familiar with the RFI on Lansdowne – was very impressed at the time at how DCC grasped the project’s complexity and identified the right questions. But that application had been very carefully crafted and had foreseen all the likely issues and tried to head them off. It even advanced the ‘exceptional circumstances’ argument for the demolition of No. 70 Shelbourne Road – which was not a Protected Structure – because the locam Members (such an appropriate word!!) 😀 were threatening to list it to scupper the project.
Maybe there was a bit of a ‘Mainland’ influence in the Clarence application (I don’t know who handled the application – so no offence iontended to colleagues)?
