Devin, do you have a hot link to all the most ridiculous planning applications, as they’re lodged.
Thereâ€™s no excuse not to discuss development on this forum since planning applications are up on the councilâ€™s site. Even just to put up elevations.
One or two schemes like Jurys Ballsbridge or the Clarence steal all the attention but a lot of major stuff goes through un-noticed â€“ the way developers want it to go. DCC has been rubber-stamping most major city-centre development for the past couple of years and, as Iâ€™ve said before, itâ€™s invariably significantly changed or refused if it goes to An Bord Pleanala. IF, that is. Youâ€™ve probably seen the ridiculous office block built almost on top of St. Michanâ€™s Church, Church Street (granted, incidentally, by the same DCC planner who granted the Henrietta Street building). A local community group objected but didnâ€™t appeal. Could list many more. Dublin is in crisis â€¦.
As it happens a refusal has just appeared today for that Fitzsimons Hotel balcony, yet the Clarence was granted permission â€¦
