Plans for a €10 million traffic free plaza at College Green are 'dead' after an Bord Pleanala rejected the application yesterday.

Dublin City Council Chief Executive Owen Keegan, has confirmed the council will not come back with a fresh proposal any time soon.

In its decision, An Bord Pleanála agreed the overall idea would significantly enhance the amenity and attractiveness of the area. However, it argued the plaza could have a significant and negative impact on bus passengers, and taxis trying to get tourists to local hotels.

The planning authority also said that it had unacceptable safety concerns regarding cyclists, pedestrians, buses and emergency vehicles.

A decision on the long-awaited project had suffered many delays, with An Bord Pleanála explaining that it was a "highly complex and unique" case.
