Ah now, it did

I suppose Kevin Doyle is the Indo's Political Editor, but he really has taken his title too seriously by changing Leo Varadkar's actual words from...

"...have a negative impact on the market value of homes"

to

"...affect the marketability of treasured homes".

Good job Kevin!

Minister Shane Ross opposes eight-floor block next to 14-storey Sandyford tower

While welcoming a proposal for the completion of the 14-storey Sentinel which he said “has been a visible scar on the Sandyford skyline for so long”, Mr Ross has told planners at Dun Laoghaire County Council that the addition of two floors to the six-storey building immediately beside it would “be totally out of sync with the local area”.

Is Ireland unique when it comes to politicians opposing development like that? Isnt it the complete reverse everywhere else in the West?

ABP say Yes.. and a commenter points out that Leo lives in a 4-storey block himself!

The Bradys site in question is less than 10 minute walk from Castleknock Train Station, about 5 minute walk from Blanchardstown Village. If anything, the proposed development is not a high enough density. There may be an argument to be made for limited car parking given the proximity to good transport links and general traffic congestion at peak times, it will limit the pool of potential buyers which in turn should moderate the prices (no bad thing) but it's a model that needs to be introduced in clusters around good public transport links

We know.
The issue is that politicians are objecting to residential development, mainly because it affects the market value of existing houses and nimbyism.
