Grafton Street Quarter improvements

JOhnson place

The Grafton Street Quarter improvement plans were unveiled yesterday you can find more information on this website www.gsq.ie and also in todays Irish times http://www.irishtimes.com/news/environment/revamp-plans-for-grafton-quarter-published-1.1573951

The public have just over two weeks, until November 15th to make observations and submissions on the designs which you can see on the website above.  It is very very important that people engage themselves in this process otherwise it will just be a small selection of the business community.

Submissions must be made in writing to Frank Lambe, Project Manager, South East Area, Block 2, Floor 4, Civic Offices, Wood Quay, Dublin 8 or by email to graftonstreetquarter@dublincity.ie  before Friday, 15th November 2013.

You don’t want to end up in what looks like an outdoor shopping mall with overbearing inappropriate architectural designs that are out of place like the ridiculous lamp standards in Smithfield plaza or even the kind of designed lamp standards that are depicted in one of the montages of St Stephens green south.

If you are interested in any of the aspects of this urban design from street furniture to appropriate trees to cyclists issues/pedestrian or any other features you fear are being over looked.

Now is the time to join the conversation.

  1. I am a Dublin resident and my research is in public participation in urban planning projects. have created a tool to understand the impact and provide feedback for these types of projects. You can see the council plan mentioned above here: http://www.urbanflowengine.com/v/8249cb!&eJzTyCkw5AoryEnOq+AqMOJK9DTmStQDAEUfBec=

    I intend to show hem once we have enough so leave your comments/thoughts, let me know if you have feedback about the tool itself.
