In defence of Kieran Rose – 22/12/2015

In my experience planners worth their salt have opinions.

Kieran Rose is an experienced planner.

What is wrong with planners (or indeed public officials in general) articulating differing views?

The alternative is a shade of institutionalised “group-think”, a slow slide into the prevailing “wisdom” of the time, something we know all about in the Ireland of recent years.

I will return to the subject of the new Guidelines in the future, as I have to understand them first (having not been consulted on them).
