Re: Re: Developments in Cork
i can understand trying to keep the facades (in the same way as the facades at parnell place were kind of kept until they fell down) but why would the planners request that the whole Central Shoes stores be kept? surely it will be brought into the retail part of the development anyway and the whole point of increasing the size is to get retailers in who want a bigger footprint? planners cant have it both ways
Might be fine too to scale back the height but wouldnt / shouldnt all that have been discussed in pre planning?
On a different note, Councillor Chris O’ Leary has proposed a motion that Cork City Council meetings be available as webcasts – would have been interesting for the event centre decision – what are the odds of them agreeing to that ?
