Re: Re: Citywest : Mansfield’s giant heap of crap
Yes indeed the Bord has ruled
Citywest convention centre is blocked
May 29, 2006 17:20
An Bord PleanÃ¡la has refused retention planning for a convention centre in south Dublin by HSS, a company connected to developer Jim Mansfield.
The 6,000-seater centre, with provision for 675 car parking spaces, had been granted planning permission by South Dublin County Council last October.
But in a decision today, an Bord PleanÃ¡la refused planning, in part, due to the scale of the development. The â‚¬50m centre first became a source of controversy when Mr Mansfield’s company built a steel frame and part of the roof without full planning approval.
In 2004, the firm was fined â‚¬1,750 and ordered to pay costs of almost â‚¬30,000 to the council after Tallaght District Court found it had failed to comply with an enforcement order by the council to stop work on the centre. But last year the Council decided to grant him permission to build the convention centre at Citywest, in Saggart, Co Dublin.
A spokesman for Jim Mansfield described the decision as disappointing. He added that that the company would look at its options when it had read the full report.
