Legacy of bad planning

IN 2002, WHEN the Government published Ireland�s first National Spatial
Strategy (NSS), there was some incredulity that so many �gateways� and
�hubs� had been designated for growth � nine in each category; it was
as if our political leaders had adopted Gay Byrne�s oft-repeated Late
Late Show line about how there was �something for everyone in the
audience�. They could not bring themselves to make the really hard
choices that would have limited growth to a more select number of
centres outside Dublin, such as Cork and Limerick/Shannon, over the
period to 2020.
