An Bord Pleanala has given Siac Construction the go ahead to build 350 apartments up to 8 stories high on the lands of their Head Office Building on the Monastery Road Clondalkin despite strong appeals from locals , councillors and TDs .
In their Judgement An Bord Pleanala described it as "an appropriate development" for the site.
my questions are these .
1) I live in the area and know that any schools and shops are a considerable distance from the site , therefore how could it be described as "appropriate" .
2) who are going to live in these apartments . will it be more Foreign workers .
3) Is the government putting pressure on the Bord to look favourably on large scale property developments in order to get money in the kitty.
