Next Wednesday, 29th November, the Hibernia Forum will hold another evening discussion, this time on the current housing situation, with Q & A and then drinks afterwards. Housing expert Karl Deeter (pictured, left) and developer Paddy Kelly (right) will talk to us and offer the perspective of the building industry and of landlords. The event will be held in Buswell’s Hotel on Kildare Street, Dublin 2 from 7pm to 9pm.
Among other things we will look at how our planning process is too complicated and prolonged and is holding up much-needed housing and investment. Karl has done a study of house prices in Dublin over the past decades and has some interesting contributions to make. Business consultant Paul Molloy will also speak, on the topic of tax breaks for developers.
The meeting is open to the public and attendees can make a contribution from the floor. It will be an important, open and hopefully constructive discussion.
