Re: Re: Development of Dun Laoghaire seafront
My point about the seafront is not the merit of the design, it’s that they opposed the concept of private involvement in the development of the site on principle as if the Council shouldn’t be getting value for its money and assets be they sites or whatever…it was the combination of a socialist rabble and local property owners seeking to protect their interests.
I’d actually have faith in the Council or An Bord Pleanala, on appeal, to judge the merits of the design and protect local amenity.
My view on the proposal was that it sounded excessive but that a public-private solution could be found.:p
As for the ice rink, same old local gentry objecting, although maybe it wasn’t profitable.
