National Monuments: Motion [Private Members]
The development of the wider street is a matter for Dublin City Council, where I believe Sinn Féin is the biggest party. Under the Planning and Development Act 2000, Dublin City Council, as both local government and planning consent authority, is charged with managing the ongoing development of this important inner city area of Dublin. The shopping centre or mall that Deputy McDonald refers to is a matter for Dublin City Council and was subject to planning permission, and Sinn Féin had the opportunity to object to it.
