Re: Re: Developments in Cork
The idea of a single central homeless hostel is falling out of favour worldwide. While the idea behind them is noble, they do bring problems of anti-social behaviour to the area around them. The preference now is for a number of smaller hostels located at a number of dispersed locations. Considering the value of the site, it should be possible to cut a deal with Simon if someone did want to develop it. The problem would be ensuring that the new locations are up and running before the current one would close. Considering most nearby residents of every proposed site are likely to object, the process could take a considerable length of time.
