Planning Decisions to 16th of February, 2018    There is no doubt that with the price of land in Dublin , we need to build up.    So it is good to see an Apartment block in Cookstown being planned for 5 storeys.     Surely we should be going even higher, if we are to keep down both the price of buying and renting.    Is it the planners or developers holding up this development?.
