A notification of decision to grant pp for retention for unauthorised use in Tailors Hall has been issued by DCC (3642/09).

Is it possible that An Taisce has been holding weddings and dances in Tailors Hall without planning permission?

Might this impact on the setting or fabric of a protected structure? Might it have impacts on adjacent amenity? (I imagine AT would have predictable views on this if a nasty commercial owner was applying.)

The planning application asserts that they have pp for ‘community use’ (?) (but their planning application form does not record this permission).

Quis custodiet ipsos custodes?

Happily the matter has been appealed by a concerned citizen – so the Board will have an opportunity to adjudicate on the matter. (It appears that AT have also appealed – presumably against the €57k or so in development contributions?

Tailors Hall was designed and built as a place of assembly. Holding weddings and dances in a purpose built place of assembly, from time to time, would seem to be pretty consistent with it’s original use.

Maintaining appropriate uses is central to proper upkeep of older buildings, especially Protected Structures.

Why is there even a planning issue about this?

. . . and how in the hell is Dublin City Council entitled to squeeze €57k out of the deal? . . . . when they did nothing to protect this building in the 70s except knock down everything around it.
