A former Fine Gael candidate Julie O’Leary has started a petition in favour of high-rise, high-density development in the docklands.
The petition, reports EchoLive, was signed by close to 400 people in its first few hours online, comes after a flurry of planning applications for tower complexes in the docklands area.
Though the scale and design of the planned towers have been controversial, Ms O’Leary said that developments like these are key for Cork to grow.
“The key to unlocking Cork’s potential is building high density and high rise development in and near the city centre,” she said.
