Motions

 

Motion 1 from Councillor Dermot Lacey

That dishing for cyclists and mobility vehicles be placed at the top of Nutley Avenue at the location submitted with this motion.

 

IMG_E81691

Nutley Avenue, D4, is a cul-de-sac that abuts with Nutley Road/SeaviewTerrace.  Our route by bike to Merrion Centre and shopping is via Nutley Avenue (Nutley Lane is too cycling-hostile), but the absence of a dished-kerb makes it tricky with full panniers to exit onto Nutley Road on the return trip.

It is a simple job. There are two young residents living around here who use e-mobility aids to get around. The dishing would obviate them having to make a sharp L-turn once through the tubular-steel barrier. They could go straight-ahead on the road.  I attach an image to show the location.

 

Motion 2 from Councillor Daniel Ceitinn

That this Area Committee:

 

  1. Notes persistent anti-social behaviour, including but not limited to public urination on public and private property, along the grand canal,
  2. Calls on Dublin City Council and Waterways Ireland to identify, or appoint as the case may be, an enforcement officer responsible for the section of the canal which runs through the South East Area, in particular the Portobello and St Kevin’s area segment, to address the ongoing and persistent anti-social behaviour which is causing grief amongst the local community,
  3. Further calls on Dublin City Council to urgently address the problems of anti-social behaviour, in particular public urination, by putting public toilets in the area,
  4. Further calls on Dublin City Council to cooperate with An Garda Síochána to clamp down on anti-social behaviour possible through the installation of CCTV cameras in the relevant public places.

 

Motion 3 from Councillor Mary Freehill

That the residential parking scheme on Clareville Rd be completed ASAP.  That the road surface between Westfield Rd and Kenilworth Park be repaired as it is very dangerous with potholes and causes cars to swerve.  That the trees on Clareville Road be pruned, as the branches are now so low that they are hitting pedestrians who pass by.

 

- Disc Parking Scheme: thank you so much, Mary, for all your help over the last number of years in getting this over the line for us. The white lines are almost fully down but there are no signs or machines yet in place and, unfortunately, the parking situation is as bad as ever as people still park on our road, as it is clear that the scheme is not yet in force. I have been in touch with Martina Hayden in DCC (who has been very helpful along with Helen McGrath) and Martina tells me that she does not yet have a date for the implementation of the scheme. If there's any way that you could help this along it would be hugely appreciated on our part.

- Road Surface: the road surface of Clareville, particularly along the stretch between Westfield Road and Kenilworth Park, is in a shocking state. 'It looks awful and repairs are done only superficially when the potholes  ...  view the full agenda text for item 9.
