Michelin did it as well, Clermont in France was built around the Michelin factory, houses apartments clubs pubs social clubs cinemas etc etc,
Pod Living will be the way of the future mark my words,
You are not seriously saying Cadbury's or the Quakers model from two hundred years ago is something we should be doing today? When companies own the homes of employees the company has implicit control of the lives of the employees and their families outside of work. Cadbury's and the Quakers forced many rules on their employees that today would be considered very controlling of peoples personal choices. It my not be explicitly written down anywhere but people living in houses owned by their employer would feel obliged to work longer and follow the companies world view not their own. That is not a model for accommodation most people today would find acceptable.
funnily enough, you ll find the large scale privatisation of our property markets is in fact the main reason why we are where we are with it, as this has simply induced widescale speculation in our markets, resulting in such, there is evidence in other well developed countries, a more state lead approach leads to far more stable markets, singapore etc, this is more than likely where we need to go with it, but will we!
And when they are liiving in company houses we could pay them with company money which can only be spent in the company shop? It all becomes too incentuous. It can create imbalance in a local economy as we saw with Waterford Glass. The answer is simple, build more houses and apartments.
Google have spent €300m redeveloping the historic Bolands Mill sight in Dublin which includes everything from apartments to retail, restaurants and leisure facilities. They specifically set aside a number of properties at a lower rent for people who provide services in the area like a baker or someone in the fire service.
On the other side of Dublin the Guinness' have provided a couple of thousand affordable social properties. I think they have big plans to do more in the coming years on the James's Gate site.
A company down in Kerry have also built houses on land they own in recent years.
It's not uncommon for a company to throw in access to house or apartment for a year or two into the package when hiring someone. I've had that myself, as have others I know.
Loads of examples of companies getting involved in residential development, albeit at a lower scale to the likes of Guinness and Cadbury's.
Sure Google is well known to give "perks" that are designed to get people to give over more of their life and time to the company.
Where a planning application is made in respect of any land or structure, and a subsequent application is made within 6 months from the date of making the first application in respect of land substantially consisting of the site or part of the site to which the first application relates, the Site Notice shall be inscribed or printed in indelible ink on a yellow background and affixed on rigid, durable material and be secured against damage from bad weather and other causes.
Did anyone see the new application for the 45 house development at ballinakill?
Their last failed app was in December, and the latest dated 6th April, however I'm only seeing the signs up today (20th April).
Going by the above statement, should the site notices be in yellow??
If they should be in yellow and as it sounds like you are considering making an objection then take pictures of the signs immediately and I would imagine that the planning sop will be deemed null and void
For God's sake, are you really going to be that guy?
What do you mean.
Which rules do you think they should comply with?
The Council planning department should be able to answer your technical query, and they'll be delighted to have your assistance on the ground there.
Thanks for being that guy.
Frisby Construction has started the first phase of a new build next to Foxwood, 100 new houses will be going in there.
