      hey all,
      i’m trying to find information on the strategical plans for dublin’s development in the future. i’m not working on it yet, but i’m planning to do my thesis / final project on dublin (at stuttgart university, germany). during my past stays in dublin i got the impression that there’s an amazing lot of building going on, but i couldn’t find any proper planning material / strategic concepts on how dublin wants to develop.
      anyone got an idea? any info is welcome!

      thanks, a.

      Yes Geran, we’ve been looking for years too, but still no sign.

      But seriously, you might start with the four county councils in Dublin:

      hehe, ok i agree it sounded stupid and lazy, but if you don’t have an idea where to start, it’s difficult to find a beginning. thanks though!

      I dont think there is any ‘strategic’ development plan for Dublin. It just seems to grow and grow in an unsustainable fashion. Of course most of it is through planning corruption so I would not expect anything remotely ‘strategic’ for the forseeable future.

      Huh..?….Is it a receipt you`re lookin for ..??
      You`ll get one of them before U get any strategy in this little empire.
      For example,as Mr Owen Keegan goes about the nostalgic task of clearing his desk after so many years as Director of Traffic he can look back on a broad canvas of real achievement,the pinnacle of which In my humble opinion was the St Patricks Weekend funfair along Custom House Quay.. Top That as Bruce Forsyth might say.. 😉
      Just to give the likes of Darkieman a little teaser of where future “Strategy” will be going out around Kingstown way we are treated to a little taster in the penny dreadfuls….(Ok Ok…The Evenin Herald).
      It appears that Mr Traffic Tsar himself is rather concerned by the “Abuse” of The Disabled Parking scheme….(The oul Blue Sticker,Boss)
      The Tsar aint happy that the Bolchieviks are,it seems copying,selling or otherwise misusing the stickers to deprive the nobility of much needed parking space for their BMW X series broughams or the latest arrival from the New World,the stretched HummVee wit spotlamps on the roof…
      In an attempt to put an end to this anarchist nonsense the Tsar is to convene an emergency meeting of the Duma in the Basement Car Park of the Winter Palace where he will insist on the levying of a charge on the crippled,maimed,infirm of mind or just plain entreprenurial of spirit.
      If the Duma fail to acceede to the Tsars request he is threatening to take the Imperial Family to the Summer Palace where they will be closer to the Mailboat and possible salvation in Holyhead should the Bolshies turn nasty and consider storming the Capitals Palace.
      The Tsar`s position has been weakened in recent days by the appearance of a pretender to his throne in the shape of an acedemic called Margaret who appears to be regarded by the peasantry as the REAL Tsarina who will deliver them from years of pestilence and oppression by reclaiming all them Bicycle Lanes and returning them to the plain Humming People of the land…
      The Tsars Imperial Secret Police,cunningly disguised as the Quality Bus Network Office have,it seems,uncovered a seditious plot to seize upon the Lord Mayors Official Coach,then stage a Grand Procession along the North Quays with the Tsarina,newly freed from the Ivory Tower of Trinity`s Acedeme sitting inside in full Imperial Regaila complete with Field Marshall`s Baton which she has indicated will be used to “Knock the Heads of the Old Ascendency Together if they do not bow to my authority”
      The Tsarina has authorised the spending of some €34 Billion or equivalent in Imperial Roubles to procure some food staples and sticky-buns which her outriders,cunningly disguised as members of the Garda Traffic Corps,will throw to the clamouring masses lining the quays to recieve the Imperial Blessing…
      Hark ye !! ….The sound of hammering on my garret door…I have been betrayed to the Secret Police….I can just see the glint of Hi-Viz yellow outside the frosted glass….I must away to another pre-arranged hiding place where I shall endeavour to keep up a flow of information to the outside world……
      In the meantime let us pray that our ageing Premier can manage to keep the Church/State relationship intact………Gotta Fly……. 😮 😮 😮
