10,305 homeless and thousands of our citizens can no longer afford to live in #Dublin. This graphic shows 7 Acres (2.83 Hectares) of derelict sites all along Thomas and James Street which is hidden behind derelict facades and yet we wonder why there’s a National #HousingCrisis. pic.twitter.com/Ijoegb2IeQ

Thomas Street, Dublin, designated ‘ACA’, an Architectural Conservation Area by Dublin City Council council
Dublin City Council has extended permission for a modern office block on the site of two Georgian houses on Thomas Street, against the advice of its own senior planner and the Dublin Civic Trust.
…The Civic Trust said the decision to allow the development was frustrating as it “rendered meaningless” the conservation status given to the street.
“There seems to be an attitude here that any development is better than none, even in a historic streetscape such as Thomas Street,” said Graham Hickey, conservation officer with the trust.”
