Re: Re: Developments in Cork
development of the former esso garage at bishopstowm refused due to:
1. pedestrian and traffic hazard
2. Height,scale, bulk would be incongruous with surrounding buildings (? doesnt the hospital have height scale and bulk?)
3. Over looking adjoining residential properties
Doesnt anyone do pre planning?
The application was for construction of a five storey mixed use building ( 11,052m2 gross floor area) over 3 basement levels of car parking (289 spaces), comprising, – 7 units of retail with optional additional use of restaurants, financial services and professional services,
as for RDJ, could they not just be acquring that on someones behalf?
That planning was refused to appease a local Councillor and residents, no other reason.
RDJ are acquiring the fee simple on behalf of Matthews Ltd.
