Cllr Janice Boylan has criticised the selling of prime land in the city centre at a loss to a private developer.
Councillors were asked to sell prime land in the city centre at a discount of €250k to a developer only to buy back six homes on the site at market value. Cllr Janice Boylan said:
“Sinn Féin absolutely opposes the sale of this land to private developers. DCC should be leading the development of this site instead of selling it off.
“Dublin City Council bought the former Plough bar on Abbey St/Marlborough St in 2017 for €850k. Fast forward to 2021, DCC management now want to sell it off for €550k to a private developer. City Council will then look to buy the six apartments built on the site back at full market value.”
