Re: Re: Archer’s Garage
Unfortunately maximum fines are rarely issued by the courts, hence it’s questionable if a €5 or €6 million fine would make any real impact on the benefit derived from building, for example, new-build apartments in the reconstructed shell…
Any fine certainly should take account of this.
Incidentally, a proposed protected structure is defined as:
“a structure in respect of which a notice is issued under section 12(3) [composing a Development Plan] or under section 55 [altering a Development Plan] proposing to add the structure, or a specified part of it, to a record of protected structures, and, where that notice so indicates, includes any specified feature which is within the attendant grounds of the structure and which would not otherwise be included in this definition”.
