Legal action over Clarence Hotel plan struck out
LEGAL action has been struck out over the refusal of a €150m plan to transform Dublin's Clarence Hotel, writes Tim Healy.
Last August, lawyers for the Clarence Partnership, whose shareholders include Bono and the Edge, got High Court permission to challenge the planning refusal.
Dublin City Council had refused to extend the life of a redevelopment planning permission, which was obtained five years ago.
John Gallagher, for the council, said the partnership was not proceeding with the case and that with the consent of both parties the matter could be struck out.
No order for costs was required, counsel added.
