Ireland: Hazel Chu, the Green Party’s Lord Mayor of Dublin, has called for a cap on the number of hotels and aparthotels being built in the city.

Chu told a recent public consultation that she recognises a need for more hotels to serve Dublin’s tourism sector and support employment opportunities, but “parts of our city now suffer from an over-concentration of hotel developments”.

“Maximum limits on the number of hotel or aparthotel rooms which can be granted permission per annum must be explored and considered,” she said.

In November last year, Ireland banned all new coliving developments.
