Home Forums Ireland Welcome to Ireland’s ugly urban sprawl Re: Re: Urban Sprawl destorying economy


Apologies sipclarke if I misinterpreted your points.
I just like leafy suburbs and houses with gardens in well-kept streets. I like communities who take an active interest in their local areas. Medium-density housing is fine for central Dublin but not further out (we need choice).
One problem with high-density housing – particularly some apartment developments – is that management of apartment blocks tends to become dysfunctional, probably due to absentee landlords who take the rent but do not participate in the day to day management of these developments. Relatively new apartment blocks can thus become degraded and are seen
as less desirable to live in.
I believe the Dublin City Manager spoke of this problem recently and perhaps we need a look (in legal terms) at the rights
and responsiblities associated with estate management.
