It is interesting to note that the conservation section of the city council submitted a very strong report on the scheme and it’s impact on the historic heritage and called for these buildings to be retained and for the retention of much of the San Damiano building.
All in all another reason why we need a vision and plan for the area – to stress the need for good quality development, so nb for our community meeting on Monday 6th July in Harold’s Cross National School!
The European Capital of Culture is a city designated by the European Union for a period of one calendar year. Each year, two cities from two chosen European countries are nominated as a Capital of Culture. In 2020, Ireland and Croatia have been announced as the chosen countries. The delegated city for each country will be selected by a process of open competition.
Dublin2020 is Dublin’s Bid to host the European Capital of Culture in 2020. We want the whole city to bid, bringing together all our values, all our people and all our resources. We want to know what has added value to your life and how you would add value to Dublin and Europe.
Being a European Capital of Culture brings real and lasting benefits. It has helped to create economic growth, build a sense of community and regenerate cities.
