Motions pdf icon PDF 142 KB

Minutes:

Motion 1 from Councillor Dermot Lacey

This committee requests the manager to provide the inclusion of road resurfacing of Havelock Square in the next relevant works programme.

Order:Report to councillor.

 

Motion 2 from Councillor Dermot Lacey

This committee requests the manager to include Havelock Square in the next round of the LED Public Lighting installation programme.

Order:Report to councillor.

 

Motion 3 from Councillor Frank Kennedy

In circumstances where Irish Rail is planning to expand the frequency of Dart services at rush hours, this committee resolves to write to Irish Rail to request some more Dart services to Grand Canal Dock in the mornings. Currently there are only a few early morning options when taking this route and, as crèches in the area don’t allow entry before a certain hour, there is a need for this route to have a train scheduled for around 7:50am and 8am each weekday. The earlier routes are packed way over capacity and so there is a need for another later service than the current 7:28am service.

Order:Agreed.

 

Motion 4 from Councillor Dermot Lacey

This committee requests a presentation on the following application:

 

Area:                           Area 1 - South East

Application No.:           2588/18

Application Type:        Permission

Applicant:                    Uniball Bar Limited

Location:                     Clonskeagh House, 68 Clonskeagh Road, Dublin 6

Proposal:         The development will consist of demolition of the existing bar known as Clonskeagh House and the development of 39 no. bedroom guesthouse across basement to 4th floor. Fit out works to include the provision of a kitchen, services, staff facilities and ancillary storage at basement level; receptions, bar, restaurant, toilets and ancillary storage at ground floor level; and guest bedrooms and laundry storage at first, second, third and fourth floor levels. All with associated signage, lighting, site works and development works.

Order:Agreed, but don’t implement / Report to councillor?

 

Motion 5 from Councillor Mary Freehill – taken with Motion 12.

That Dublin Bus and the National Transport Authority (NTA) be invited to attend our June

LAC to discuss the shortage of buses on the Terenure, Rathgar and Kimmage Road Lower routes. A recent reply from Dublin Bus said:

 

“100 new buses are being introduced into the Dublin Bus fleet this year in conjunction with the National Transport Authority. These are being added on a phased basis to meet with the increase in demand and to further enhance the comfort and reliability of our service for customers who use our services in the Greater Dublin Area”.

 

Access to public transport in the above inner suburbs has now become unavailable from 7.30am on week mornings as all the buses are full when they reach Terenure and Kimmage.  Therefore this meeting resolves that this area meeting impress upon this June meeting the urgent need to have empty buses start from Terenure village and the Kimmage Cross Roads (KCR) to provide a service for the inner suburbs.

Order:Agreed.

Motion 6 from Councillor Mary Freehill
