Re: Re: Wiggins Teape
The Irish Independent reports this morning that the Collen Group is applying for planning permission on the Wiggins Teape site. Nowhere is it mentioned that the group cynically and scandalously demolished the building, including its outstanding portico, last year. Instead there’s a lot of blather about how Collen’s original application was held up by a single objector and eventually An Bord Pleanala gave an unreasonable decision. What a shame the Collen Group can’t be forced to rebuild Wiggins Teape like Noel O’Callaghan did with Archer’s.
What a bunch of loony lefty tweedy conservation types infest this site. I think you’d all be better moving over to the An Taisce chatboard. This is supposed to be an architecture site – and you can’t build stuff without either knocking other stuff down or “destroying”
