An Bord Pleanála has turned down Dublin City Council’s new planning scheme for the Docklands because it does not allow enough height and density.
The North Lotts and Grand Canal Dock Strategic Development Zone (SDZ) plan covers the site of Johnny Ronan’s proposed 45 and 41-storey towers and would have meant those towers limited to 25 storeys.
The city council successfully argued in the High Court that the SDZ for the area sets the legal parameters for development including building height.
