I pass this junction regularly on my way to work and I cannot believe how they are getting away with this. If they somehow got permission or get retention, it still beggers belief. The new structures have been built right out almost to the edge of the street, leaving a tiny strip of footpath. This is one of the busiest junctions in the area, and in morning and evening rush hours it is full of vehicular and pedestrian traffic going in all directions. If anything they should have been forced to move the boundary back from the street, not bring it closer. Now there won’t even be room for 2 people to pass on the footpath without stepping out into the traffic.

As clichéd as this sounds, it won’t be long before there’s an accident there and a pedestrian is knocked down.

While I was in the area I took a snap or two of the library extension:

To her credit Cllr. Catherine Clancy of the Labour Party has raised this illegal development with the city manager and planners, her answer from the manager was, “we’ll look into it’, months later and nothing has been done.
CIE have reported broken bus mirrors to CCC on a number of occasions due to the scaffold poles erected on the ROAD.
😡 The footpath outside this monstrosity is not wide enough for a wheelchair or a buggy, I sincerely hope nobody gets injured or killed because of the lack of planning enforcement, but if CCC and the city manager end up getting sued if such occurs they can just pass on the costs to Joe Public by a few extra euro on the business rate.
