Share this article


An Bord Pleanala is denying a lack of manpower is to blame for ongoing delays in making a decision on planned changes to College Green in Dublin.

It says the proposed civic plaza is a "highly complex and unique" case, which the board needs to spend more time deliberating on.

The planning authority says the nature of what's being proposed isn't seen very often, and has scheduled extra meetings to discuss the details.

A decision on the proposal was due to be announced today, but An Bord Pleanala now says that won't happen until October 31st.

It is understood that the authority has given itself some wiggle room with the date, and a decision may in fact be confirmed earlier.

Green Party Councillor, Ciaran Cuffe, believes the College Green plaza is a "must have" project.

"We need to deliver these big projects. They are good for Dublin, and if they are delayed on many occasions it is simply preventing improvements from happening", he said.
