The School of Architecture at UCD wants public representatives to consider a report it is has made into plans to develop Moore Street.
The report from the School of Architecture at University College Dublin accuses Dublin Corporation of having little consultation with the people directly affected by the plans to redevelop Moore Street. Instead of speaking to the people that live and work on the street, responsibility for planning is being handed over to the developer Irish Life Assurance Company.
One of the authors of the report, architect Toal Ó Muiré argues that the plan puts financial considerations ahead of human considerations.
If Dublin Corporation goes ahead with this development and builds something which is commercially successful, it may still leave the human problems unsolved.
In publishing the report, it is hoped to provoke public discussion on Dublin Corporation's planning policy.
Toal Ó Muiré wants to see legislation to protect the existing residents and tenants on the street.
