Forget about what the planning permission is for, in your opinions, how many storeys should the new building be ?


Why should there be a planning limit?

There should be actual planning not limits per se.

I think what we have had since 1964 is more correctly described as "The (arbitrary political) Limiting Process" of the spatial potential. Catalysed by watchful spatial prohibitionists, who lurk around every corner and seize on any and every opportunity to invoke their immense powers of limitation by activating process at great cost to everyone else but themselves, policed by a minority of locally based civil servant limiting officers, aka planners.

The subject is of course suited to an existing or dedicated thread (which there is probably one already that's not springing to mind).

So the 'Activists' that took over 1 of those gaffs in Summerhill D1 that dozens of Brazilians had been kicked out of due to fire safety concerns had to leave there because of a court order.
They then took over a house on North Frederick St D1 and are still there despite a court order from a week ago.
And today they had a protest march at the GPO before going on to take over another vacant property, this time in Belvedere Court, D1. They seem to be indicating that the Belvedere Court property belongs to a public representative but haven't named that person yet, neither has the media.

Quote:
In a social media event page for the occupation this evening, the activists said: “While occupations hold a special place in our hearts, this one is set to be a show-stopper.”
When asked by TheJournal.ie whether they could provide any indication as to where the property will be, the spokesperson said that “public representatives aren’t beyond targeting”.
