Sinn Féin rejects plans to delist Georgian buildings
Sinn Fein Councillor Killian Forde has expressed concern over the Dublin City Council proposal to delist more than 500 Georgian houses as protected buildings. The proposal to delist these structures has been submitted in the Draft Dublin Development Plan for 2005-2011.
Councillor Forde said:
"This proposal is a step backwards in the promotion and retention of Dublin City‚s historic building heritage.
"I am urging all parties on the Council to reject this regressive step and support a Sinn Féin proposal to retain the 500 buildings in question. I am also calling on the Council to carry out a full inventory of some 4,000 remaining Georgian and Edwardian buildings currently not included on the Record of Protected structures." ENDS
