The City Council just granted permission for the SFX Theatre (http://www.sfx.ie) to be demolished and to be replaced by apartments. Planning Application Reference: 3046/05.
While the SFX isn’t much, I’d argue it serves the surrounding area & community far more than a block of apartments will. I don’t understand how the City approves of a facility which is a public use building being removed from the area to assist with developers profits.
I didn’t see this on time, so I can only make an observation but that’s at a price tag of E50 😮 maybe i’ll ask my neighbours to assist.
