what criteria are they using for that 14%? they mention a mile from a rail station at one point, is that the benchmark?
i find it hard to believe that 86% of dublin houses are more than a mile from a bus stop.
What the council has done with The Plough is IMO progress - yeah it would have been way better if they had confiscated the site and built on it themselves, but for whatever reason they don't do that, and this is better than just leaving it derelict forever, like they've done with so many buildings in the north inner city.
BTW - why in the name of fuck did they spend 80 grand on dealing with "a rodent infestation"? Who cares if there's rats in an empty building? Even if you killed them all their cousins would be moved back in within a week of the massacre
I mean if they'd appropriated it (seeing as it was derelict) instead of buying it in the first place
I've been on that shit, the bit where it basically starts going round in a circle after Blanch is fucking mentalmy favourite bus route map. you have to zoom out to fully appreciate it
the bleedin state of that. the 71 minute journey time claimed for it is EXTREMELY optimistic. can take well over 30 minutes to reach the m50
I don't like how it's happening, but having city centre land in use is way better than it being derelict.
