Just a late response to this, community relies heavily on people, a good social demographic mix, facilitated by planning and design sciences. Speaking from experience in Tallaght where a small rural village had a massive, ill planning population growth in 1970’s without any associated services, both need to be given equal time, thought and weight.
Now with another large polulation movement into a Town centre in Tallaght, real fears are again being mentioned as the existing communities are not being consulted in a meaningful way and an overuse of section 23 is feeding fears of a repeat of past mistakes in Tallaght.
So my view is there needs to be a well thoughr, strategic approach to building a community by state agencies, existing communities and private developers to give communities best possible start to get established and to flourish. If you leave one out, the foundation is unstanbe. The one being left out more more and more in Ireland is the existing community. They are as valid stakeholders in the process as private land owners.
