Linkedin Print RELATED ARTICLESMORE FROM AUTHOR Facebook Thefts of catalytic converters on the rise #crimeprevention The former tourist office at Arthurs QuayTHERE has been a widespread welcome for news of a proposed development at Arthur’s Quay in which Marks and Spencer would be the anchor tenant.Limerick’s Tiernan Properties has signed heads of agreement with the British retail giants to become the anchor tenant for a major €60 million development on the city’s Arthur’s Quay.Sign up for the weekly Limerick Post newsletter Sign Up Chief executive Michael Tiernan told the Limerick Post that the plans are “at an early stage but we will now hopefully have a discussion with Limerick City and County Council and subject to a successful outcome to those discussions, we will move forward.”The development will be dependent on other factors, mostly delivery of infrastructure outlined in the Limerick 2030 plan which has already been adopted and acted on by the local authority.The new development will involve a site currently occupied by the former Limerick Tourism office at Arthur’s Quay, but public amenities in the park itself will not be affected.The British chain has been linked to various sites in Limerick city and suburbs over several decades, but has no outlet in the area.The clothing, food and homewares retailer has now agreed to be the main tenant in the proposed 18,580sq m (200,000sq ft) mixed-use development.Tiernan Properties said there had been “significant interest” from other major brands in the project, which is expected to boost footfall in the centre of Limerick.The developers said getting a “key target” like Marks & Spencer on board “validates the wider project” and would prove pivotal for Limerick.“We have a lot of work to do but as this is a development in line with the aims of the 2030 plan, we believe it would support that plan,” Mr Tiernan said.Limerick Chamber chief executive Dee Ryan said the announcement that the Arthur’s Quay development is to go ahead was another major boost for the city and region.“This is more great news for Limerick and the wider city region. To have this and the Ryder Cup 2026 announced for Limerick on the same day is incredible.  It shows where the city, county and region is headed.”“This huge injection of private investment in retail is an important signal of market confidence and ongoing work to revitalise Limerick city centre.  We are powering ahead in so many respects as we develop a thriving urban experience for people who live in, work and visit Limerick.“The retail community, in particular, welcome a boost exactly like this to help attract more people from Limerick and neighbouring counties into the city,” she addedMayor Michael Sheahan said that along with all the other plans for Limerick, the multi-million euro investment by Tiernan Properties would help revitalise the city centre.”“Confirmation that Marks and Spencer is to be the anchor tenant will see the company open its very first store in the mid-west region.  It has been a long time coming and I am delighted that such a sought after retailer is opening a store here,” Mayor Sheahan concluded.last_img read more

To contact Casperson, e-mail: [email protected] The National Association of Realtors (NAR) recently released its Existing Home Sales report—discovering that October 2017 reported the strongest pace since June, but low supply continues to lead to fewer closings on an annual basis for the second month in a row.Amidst the ongoing narrative of supply shortages, the report found that total existing-home sales increased by 2.0 percent to a seasonally adjusted annual rate of 5.48 million in October from 5.37 million in September.According to NAR’s Chief Economist Lawrence Yun, this slight increase is attributed to job growth, which in most of the country continues to carry on at a robust level and is starting to slowly push up wages—giving households added assurance that now is a good time to buy a home.”While the housing market gained a little more momentum last month, sales are still below year-ago levels because low inventory is limiting choices for prospective buyers and keeping price growth elevated,” Yun said.Although the impact on housing from Hurricanes Harvey and Irma are still experienced in parts of Texas and Florida, Yun forecasts that sales should rebound.”The residual effects on sales from Hurricanes Harvey and Irma are still seen in parts of Texas and Florida,” Yun added. “However, sales should completely bounce back to their pre-storm levels by the end of the year, as demand for buying in these areas was very strong before the storms.”The report notes that the median existing-home price for all housing types in October was $247,000—representing a 5.5 percent increase from last year at $234,100. In addition, this price increase for October marks the 68th straight month of year-over-year gains, according to NAR.At the end of October, totally housing inventory decreased 3.2 percent to 1.80 million existing homes for sale, and is now “10.4 percent lower than a year ago at 2.01 million, and has fallen year-over-year for 29 consecutive months.”Meanwhile, the report notes that unsold inventory is at a 3.9-month supply at the current sales pace—a decline from 4.4 months a year ago.”Listings—especially those in the affordable price range—continue to go under contract typically a week faster than a year ago, and even quicker in many areas where healthy job markets are driving sustained demand for buying,” said Yun. “With the seasonal decline in inventory beginning to occur in most markets, prospective buyers will likely continue to see competitive conditions through the winter.”To view the full report, click here.

His grievance was that in the month of November, 2019, barricades were placed in front of the Mosque’s entrance and three constables were posted to perform picketing duty, which was causing inconvenience to the devotees, to access the gate of the Mosque.Accordingly, the prayer in the petition was that the Delhi Police ought to remove the barricades from its present place and move it a few meters ahead or behind the gate of the Mosque.Submissions before the CourtThe Waqf Board filed its response to the petition, and in the affidavit, it stated that the counsel Wajeeh Shafiq himself visited the spot on 17th September, 2020 and found that the police had placed three barricades to slow down the incoming traffic for the purpose of checking.It was also submitted that at the time of his visit, the barricades were manned by two armed policemen and according to him, the checking starts in the afternoon and continues till midnight and thereafter the barricades are removed, but are placed in front of the gate of the Mosque.He relied upon the satellite images taken from the Google Earth maps to show the staggered manner in which the barricades are placed.The Delhi police placed its status report on record. The submission of the Counsel appearing for the police was that the police had placed barricades, but these barricades did not block the entrance to the Mosque.It was argued that there are two shops which are run by the Mosque Management Committee and the revenue from these shops is used to manage the Mosque. There were some PCR calls on this stretch of Rao Tula Ram Marg, which indicated the incidents of snatching, robberies and accidents.Further, the police found that the traffic which comes out from Vasant Vihar, going to Gurgaon was exiting Vasant Vihar without any checking, and the Mosque is located in an isolated area. Accordingly, barricades were put up.He further submitted that a picket has also been put up by the police about 10 meters from the entrance of the Mosque. This was done after a letter was received from the Defence Estate Office, Delhi Circle, Delhi Cantt., for removal of unauthorised construction and encroachment on the defence land, and it was found that the Secretary was in unauthorized occupation of the land of 0.716 acres, and has been commercially exploiting the same.The police, however, assured the Court that the barricades would not, in any manner, result in creating any obstruction for devotees to perform prayers in the Mosque.Court’s directionsAfter going through the records, and the photographs which were placed on record, the Court found that there was some variance between the version being given by the police, and the Google Earth images which were placed on record.Since there was a variance between the two versions being given, and also considering the affidavit of the Delhi Waqf Board and the status report of the police, the following directions were issued:i. The police shall ensure that the barricades are erected on the road at least 10 meters prior to the entrance of the Mosque or ahead of the entrance of the Mosque,so as to ensure that in front of the Mosque there is no obstruction for the devotees, to enter through the gate of the Mosque;ii. The administration of the Mosque shall ensure that in the shops being run outside, there is no gathering of a crowd which would create any obstruction to the commuters using the road, which is stated to be the exit from Vasant Vihar towards Gurgaon;iii. The police shall also ensure that if there is any checking of vehicles which is required, adequate number of constables are posted on the site so as to carry out the checking, either 10 metres before the vehicles enter the mosque or 10 meters after the gate of the Mosque, without impeding the devotees from entering the Mosque.Insofar as the allegations of any unauthorized construction or encroachment were concerned, the Court did not examine the said issue and the authorities were permitted to take action in accordance with the law.The Mosque Management was also directed to ensure that there is no unauthorized construction or encroachment in the Mosque area, and the Mosque area is only used by devotees to offer prayers.Accordingly, the present petition and all pending applications were disposed of.Click Here To Download Order[Read Order]Next Storylast_img read more

How to be frugal with holiday spending

first_imgYour Guide to Frugal CheerFinding it hard to feel festive when all you can think about is that fat credit card bill or those student loans you’re (still) paying off? Unfortunately, you’re not alone: three in four American households are currently saddled with some kind of debt.So, as we enter a new holiday season — with shoppers planning to spend even more than last year — here’s how to affordably take part in the giving season and keep a lid on debt.Plan Around Your Real BudgetAiming to cap your holiday spend at $500? Map out your spending according to that exact figure, not on money you “think” is going to come rolling in. Avoid temptation by sticking to cash and prioritizing your budget.First, set aside money for folks who deserve nice tips — the babysitter, dog walker, house cleaner, etc. — and buying a few gifts for the kids. Based on what’s left, it may be that your child’s teachers and Great Uncle George will have to receive homemade cookies instead of iTunes gift cards. (And enjoy them more! Maybe!)If your manager does pull through with a substantial bonus, consider it an extra payment toward an existing card balance. continue reading » 12SHARESShareShareSharePrintMailGooglePinterestDiggRedditStumbleuponDeliciousBufferTumblrlast_img read more
