If this policy was enforced correctly……Then architects should be overjoyed with a policy such as this…….essentially it gives the space for total freedom of design ……you could imagine Ireland becoming a world centre for experimental architecture ……..

Sorry was dreaming for a moment …..the above will not happen unfortunatley ….I fear quiet the opposite in fact………but could Roche at least in return for this farce get some other leglisation passed that might ensure that design is given a priority ….

if there was a proper design comission formed to oversee building in the countryside …..if the title of architect was recognised officially………..if we had a real national spatial strategy ………..if planners were given design training and each authority had its own design department …….

there are lots and lots of good and better ideas out there about how and where to build ………..we should be providing examples of quality alternatives to one -off housing……….why would you want to live in an new developer designed estate when you can build in the countryside ……….

If we had a europan site ……it might be a start ………
