Re: Re: Developments in Cork
what did come out of that meeting? – those councillor proposals are so piecemeal and ambiguous its not funny. Why dont they propose items such as “that this council not grant any developments in designated suburbs without a roads and public transport assessment proving that it will not add to congestion” – they cant just ad hoc decide they dont like anything over 3 storeys – that just ADDS to urban sprawl, congestion, strain on public transport etc – its lucky they have no power
After coming out of committee the proposals go to a full Council meeting for a vote. Like you said, it is lucky that councillors have no power, but behind the scenes they can make life difficult for officals and planners.
