Re: Re: Developments in Cork
hell will freeze before resignations. My bet is that the council management are secretly hoping the bord overturns their decision, thus avoiding a hefty compo bill.This has been clumsily handled. They should have bought the site first day when it was offered on the market, rather than trying to bolt the preverbial door with the development plan variation. Alternatively, they should have stood their ground and maintained that the plan as it existed was sufficient to prevent development. The pressure brought to bear by local Councillors and pressure groups forced the council to amend the plan ( which should not have been needed if the plan was drafted correctly in the first instance) which now ironically is more of a hindrance than a help.
Fascinating study in the discipline of development. Excellent display of maximisation of potential for profit. In these difficult times, kudos for “thinking outside the box” to Mr. Mahon. This is the type of imaginative and innovative thinking that other developers must look at with envy. No sweeter profit. Hats off.
