That was a good precedent to set for the town, the Town Hall is such an important building in the architectural hierarchy of Bray and to allow anything other than best practice would have been a disaster at that location. No.1 College Green is no less important given its proximity to the Bank of Ireland complex and Foster Place the importance of both cannot be underestimated in the heritage of the City.
Another proposal under application is within No.2 College Green, it is proposed within the main facade to insert a modern disabled access ramp at the eastern side (the one that leads to FX). While being totally in favour of full implementation of Part M of the building regulations; I am totally opposed to this given the International Importance of this building.
The obvious solutions to me were either
1> Ramp the step at the College St entrance
2> Open up an opening into fake door on the Foster Place elevation.
I noted that the application was compiled by a Northern firm, I wonder could this be an indication that one or more southern practices considered it to be a serious mistake?
