Re: Re: Developments in Cork
AIdan – You made some very good points, especially in relation to exchequer funding and public transport being the preserve of semi-state monopolies (monoliths!). One of the key problems for the City Council, and one which negatively impacts everything from planning to public transport, is the fact that city boundaries have not changed in decades and as a result many of the surburbs are now outside their remit and under the juristiction of the county council. This applies to all our cities (with Dublin having three councils to contend with). Leads to many instances of one hand not knowing what the other is doing.
