Public meeting â€” Save Moore Street Thursday 6.30pm
There is a meeting being held for anybody interested in working against this development, both publicising the proposals and hopefully submitting a planning objection. Lots of ideas and people needed
Dublin’s much loved Moore St. market, one of the most organically diverse, culturally & historically layered streets remaining in Dublin city centre is under serious threat of extinction from a â‚¬500 million multi-storey commercial development. Plans are soon due to be fully unveiled to the public.
The developer behind the Dundrum shopping centre has in the past few years bought most of the property in an area encompassing Henry Street to Parnell Street in the north/south direction and O’Connell Street to Moore Street in the east/west direction. Most of the buildings are to be demolished to make way for a glorified shopping centre to include two canopied multi-storey shopping streets.
These plans are due to be submitted for planning application with the full support of Dublin City Council in what will no doubt be sold to the public as a ‘visionary’ and ‘revitalising’ project for the north inner city.
Plans of this development will soon be made available to the public who have the power to object and make a stand with the traders.
