Re: Re: Developments in Cork
😡 Fears that anti apartment paranoia in Cork is spreading to areas outside Wilton is confirmed by tonightâ€™s Evening Echo reporting that Cllr. Terry Shannon has joined the NIMBY brigade declaring that high rise developments are not suitable for his area.
Cllr. Shannon spoke against apartments in city hall recently supported (surprisingly) by Jim Corr, Denis Oâ€™Flynn, Catherine Clancy, Ciaran Lynch, and Sean Martin, these beauties joined the usual antiâ€™s such as McCarthy- Buttimer, Oâ€™Brien, Oâ€™Leary, Barry et al.
Proposed developments that are upsetting our poor councilors include;
Cormac Smithâ€™s proposal for the demolition of Springville House, Blackrock and the construction of a residential development consisting of 29 No. apartments and 7 No. townhouses and parking for 40 No. vehicles with access off Bull’s Lane.
Lane Homes plans to demolish Lovett’s Restaurant and the associated stone boundary wall and construct 33 no. apartments consisting of 10 no. 1 bedoom apartments & 23 no.2 bedroom apartments over 2, 3, and 4 storeys.
Extinguishing part of the green area in Lake Lawn, Douglas to allow access for apartment development.
Redevelopment of the Ardmanning Bar, Togher Road.
Redevelopment of the Doughcloyne Hotel
How will urban sprawl ever be addressed with narrow minded fools such as these?:o
