I agree with the point that De Dallas is making we do bland like no other in this City, places like Cork and Belfast have retained far more than we have but ultimately this is a planning matter and until College Green is designated an Architectural Conservation Area, it will not have the same safe guards as O’Connell St and Cathal Brugha St in the form of a well written Integrated Area Plan.
The fact that Starbucks had no other outlets in Ireland at the time of the application means they cannot be considered a multiple.
College Green is however a conservation area so all proposals must be sympathetic to the numerous PROTECTED STRUCTURES that surround it.
It is zoned Z5 ‘To consolidate and facilitate the development of the central area, and to to identify, reinforce and protect its civic design character and dignity
I totally agree with DD, how did centra get permission for that specific signage.
It is time that retail zoning becomes less broad and more specific with specific zonings for:
1> Take Away / fast food
2> Betting Shop
4> Convenience Store
5> Call shop/Internet Cafe
6> Discount goods/household
