To be fair GregF, An Taisce did object to the very inapproriate and downright ugly development proposed for the Ormonde Hotel which if I remember DCC permitted. The development ever happened. Its also not AT’s job to enforce proper planning, its merely an interested party. Given the limited voluntary nature of the organisation the fact that it responded to both the Ormond and Clarence proposals, which both have siginificant implications for the Liffey streetscape, is to be congratulated as far I am concerned. They didnt get paid to do it. They didnt get financial assistance to do it. They didnt have access to a range of designers, consulants and the like to get through the process.
But enough of that. I have to say your comments regarding what might happen if this was refused are quite valid. However I think this equally says a lot about the system in this country.
