City Manager to prepare report on Dunne permission

000232a

The Manager of Dublin City Council is to prepare a report for councillors on how the developer Seán Dunne was granted planning permission by city planners for his site in Ballsbridge. John Tierney last night agreed to prepare the report in time for next month’s council meeting after councillors passed two emergency motions calling for an independent investigation into the process that led to Mr Dunne being granted permission. An Bord Pleanála last week overturned the council planners’ decision asserting strongly that the plans contravened the city development plan. The first of the two motions was proposed by Cllr Dermot Lacey (Labour) and seconded by Cllr Kevin Humphreys (Labour), while the second was proposed by the Fine Gael group and seconded by Cllrs Lacey and Humphreys. The Labour Party motion called for “an independent investigation into the process that led to the granting of planning permission for the Jury’s/Berekeley Court site in Ballsbridge given the strenuous assertion by An Bord Pleanála that it clearly contravened the city development plan.”
