Shane Ross is objecting to a medium density development a few km from Dublin City Centre.
He thinks there will be an access issue. Funnily enough he is the transport minister, so im sure he could cook up some access extra access roads as minister for that sort of stuff.
He will no doubt find favour with the locals.http://www.independent.ie/irish-news/ro ... 12317.html
Transport Minister Shane Ross has helped block the construction of 45 new homes in south Dublin and is expected to object to another 63 in the coming days.
The minister is "very pleased" that Dún Laoghaire Rathdown County Council turned down an application for a five-story complex on the site of the former Kiely's pub in Mount Merrion.
It had been proposed that the site - owned partly by Paddy McKillen Jr - would be developed to include retail spaces, parking for 185 cars, a gym, a restaurant and other amenities.
However, Mr Ross was among over 330 people who submitted objections to 46 residential units, which were mostly two-bedroom apartments.
"The fact that a developer can purchase a land-locked area and gain entrance by demolishing a perfectly good house in a cul-de-sac is absolutely outrageous," Ms Donnelly said.
Love the weasel phrase "completely out of character" with the area.
