Section 15.27.0 Street Furniture
Certain uses in the public realm including elements of street furniture can lead
to problems of visual clutter and to obstruction of public footpaths for
pedestrians, in particular people with disabilities. These elements include
newspaper stands, telephone kiosks, traffic and bus signs, tables and chairs,
taxi and bus shelters as well as unauthorised A-frames and spinner stands
erected by retailers. It is an objective of Dublin City Council to control the
location and quality of these structures in the interests of creating a high
quality public domain.
All outdoor furniture provided by private operators including retailers,
publicans and restauranteurs etc., and utility companies should be to the
highest quality, preferably in good contemporary design avoiding poor historic
imitation and respect the overall character of the area and quality of the public
realm and be so located to prevent any obstruction of all footpaths and paved
areas including landings.
In this regard, street furniture will require either a licence under Section 254 of
the Planning and Development Act, 2000 to 2002 or planning permission
(including street furniture erected on private landings).
In both instances, the applicant will be required to submit details of the
location, design, specification and quality of the proposed elements of street
furniture. Details of maintenance and cleansing schedules together with a
certificate of structural stability may also be required.
The kiosks are not retail units they were notified as street furniture, what do you think street furniture or retail space?
