Retail space guidelines introduced, says Hogan

MINISTER FOR the Environment Phil Hogan has insisted draft guidelines to relax the floor space limits on retail premises in Dublin and other major cities have been introduced in negotiation with the EU-IMF troika.

Fianna Fáil environment spokesman Niall Collins had called on the Minister to acknowledge that the EU-IMF deal “did not specifically provide for an increase in that cap” on floor space.

“It provided for a study,” he said, warning that any change in the regulations to allow more space for retail premises “would squeeze the smaller retailers in town centres”.

Mr Hogan said: “When the EU and IMF ask you to carry out a study, they do so with a particular purpose in mind.”

Hi there! great stuff, glad to drop by your page and found these very interesting and informative. Thanks for sharing, keep it up!
Having the right representation can mean the difference between favorable lease arrangements and a costly business proposition. Professional representation is always a good idea just about any time you’re in the market for office, retail or industrial space, such as:
Bringing a new business on-line; Expanding the footprint of your current business operation; Moving your business to/from New Hampshire; Sub leasing extra property or space to generate revenue
