In fairness, Dick Gleeson and Kieran Rose should not be mentioned in the same sentence. There is a quantum difference between the two in terms of understanding of the city and critical analysis of development. Dick Gleeson is a brilliant planner, probably the best the city has ever had. Kieran Rose has no critical faculties working and has rubber-stamped almost every major city-centre development proposal he has dealt with in the past 3 to 4 years (I can substantiate that if necessary), which is then invariably heavily modified/refused on appeal.
What proportion of Mr Rose’s decisons, which have been appealed to the board, have been overturned/heavily modified, and how does that compare with his colleagues?
