Are we returning to the days of urban sprawl? Suzanne Meade joins debate on ‘The Last Word.’

There are not enough houses or apartments being built to deal with the demand for affordable housing.  But of the homes that are being built, are they in the right locations?  Are we making the same mistakes we made a decade ago in building housing estates in Dublin’s commuter counties, which could be contributing to urban sprawl and a return to lengthy commutes?

Suzanne Meade, Research Fellow at TRI joins:  Orla Hegarty, architect and assistant professor in the School of Architecture, Planning and Environmental Policy at UCD; Frank McDonald, author and former environment editor of The Irish Times; and Catherine Martin, Deputy Leader of the Green Party in Monday’s panel debate on ‘The Last Word’.  Listen to the debate here.
