    Default Proposal to ban sex shops from near schools or churches in Dublin

    The proposal from the Dublin City Business Association would effectively ban sex shops from most areas of the city centre :

    Business body seeks to gentrify district by ban on sex shops, tattooists and tanning salons - The Irish Times - Tue, Nov 27, 2012
    Sex shops should be banned within 500m of a place of worship or educational institution, the report says. “This measure is based on one introduced in New York City by Mayor Rudy Giuliani and successfully dealt with this particular land use issue,” the report says.
    Full report: http://www.dcba.ie/?p=1005

    Do posters agree ? Are sex shops that different ?

    Banning sex shops from churches and schools?

    Sounds like a good plan.

    Anything the Dublin City Business Association advocates for I'm against!

    Not having been in Dublin for several years, I didn't realise proliferation of sex shops was such a problem.

    Is it?

    It's not a problem at all and I don't see why they are objecting.

    How many churches and schools are in the South William Street area? Been a while and I have to admit neither would have been registering very highly on my radar

    There is a formal church nearby on Clarendon St, also there's a school of music. Aside from that there are quite a few evangelical Christian and Muslim places of worship dotted around the city centre...let alone the language schools etc

    I can understand the logic of keeping them away from schools. But churches? What are they afraid of?? That's the Flock will turn to blow up sheep?
