Councillor claims Civic Plaza plans for College Green is creating 'chaos'

New trees, public benches and 32 fountains representing every county in Ireland are among the plans for a vehicle-free College Green in Dublin. An Bord Pleanala is hearing submissions from Dublin City Council on plans for a new civic plaza that will prevent all traffic from travelling east to west. Green Party Councillor Ciaran Cuffe says the plans are exactly what the capital needs. He said: "It's about time that we took a little bit of space away from traffic and gave it back to the pedestrian.

"I think it'll be a really child-friendly space, there'll be trees, seats, events and programming. I think it'll be a fantastic initiative." But objectors say the plan is bad news for local businesses and commuters.
