Re: Re: Keeping up appearances
This is exactly the type of thing I mean. And as for development fees that is my point entirely…what happens to those fees!! Most new developments are conditioned by the planners to restore the paving around their building and properly landscape it which I presume means proper paving as opposed to this type of stuff. Many do, it has to be said, although its always treated as a minor job and no thought is put into it. For example look at the new Grand Canal developments – lots of nice paving but none of it dished for wheelchairs, prams, the elderly. This is obviously something they feel is the job of the council.
But too many seem to opt for shite aul pour concrete and the council just seems unable or unwilling to get anything further from them.
