Developers to face high-rise curbs as council agrees plan
City councillors last night agreed to ban the construction of buildings above 28m (92ft) â€“ about half the height of Liberty Hall â€“ unless a statutory plan called a Local Area Plan (Lap) was drafted for the area in question. Such a plan could take several years to develop.
This would block the construction of any further high-rise or even medium-rise buildings in areas previously earmarked by the council for tall buildings such as the Docklands, Heuston and Connolly stations and Georgeâ€™s Quay.
