Capel Street is Dublin’s latest area to become an Architectural Conservation Area (ACA), bringing an end to its tacky signage and visible sex-shop frontage. Dublin City Council (DCC) will make the street a protected ACA because of its architectural importance and will clean up the area as a result. Councillor Emer Costello says the move “will bring improvements to the area”. However, she expressed her concern at the fact that no owners were notified by letter about the ACA by the DCC. Under the conservation order, owners will need planning permission if they are to change their advertising signs. “The practice of advertising that turns shop fronts into bill boards is not desirable,” it is stated within the ACA report.
