The proposal has from a well informed source been in operation in Paris and New York for 75 years where it is considered to be a very valuable tool in protecting important cultural establishments. It is worth noting that the Empire State Building was built on the site of the former Waldorf- Astoria hotel which was a terrible loss to the cultural fabric of New York. I can’t see the designation being used on a very large scale but certainly if it were in place important cultural institutions such as the ‘Olympia’ ‘Gaiety’ ‘Shelbourne’ ‘Wynnes’ ‘Gresham’ and a number of the better Victorian pubs would be secured in the design for which the buildings were designed for.
