Motions

Motion 1 from Councillors Tara Deacy and Pat Dunne

That this committee support the relocation of the recycling site on Sundrive Road to a more suitable alternative site. The existing site is unsuitable in terms of proximity to the residential area surrounding it and is causing problems locally in terms of illegal dumping. The site is an eye sore on a busy main road and needs to be considered for re location as soon as possible.

 

Motion 2 from Councillor Mary Freehill

That a variation process commences to Dublin City Council Development Plan 2016-2022, regarding the established football playing fields in Cathal Brugha Barracks, Rathmines which are on the southern side of the barracks and bounded by rear of Grosvenor Square and Grosvenor Lodge to rezone from Z15 to Z9 to preserve, provide and improve recreational amenity and open space and green networks.   This portion of barracks land has been established as playing fields for many decades.  Reason, there are no other publicly owned playing fields in the Rathmines area, so it is essential that these established football pitches are protected for the local population.

 

Motion 3 from Councillor Mary Freehill

That the Planning Enforcement Department gives us an update on the request to take enforcement action against the developers of Mount Argus Mill who are erecting gates which would close off the public area of the grounds, furthermore that the planning enforcement officer for the area attend the meeting to take us up to date on what action has been taken.

 

Motion 4 from Councillor Deirdre Conroy

To ask if this committee would agree to a playground in Terenure village, where there are surrounding narrow residential roads where children cannot play on the roads, due to the heavy traffic nearby.  I am advised that the images attached in Terenure Village, in particular Evergreen, had playgrounds planned by Dublin City Council in the past, but did not go ahead. In that regard, it is a more urgent necessity now for children and parents to walk to a safe play area.

             

 

Motion 5 from Councillor Mary Freehill

That this Area Committee contacts the ESB to get an update on the refurbishment of Georgian houses in the South Georgian Core into residential units as committed to in 2014.

 

Motion 6 from Councillor Mary Freehill

That the South East Office pursues the addition of a WEE electrical waste facility in one of the Bring Centres in the Rathmines Kimmage area.   Currently there are only 3 centres in the city and none of these are on the west side of the city.

 

Motion 7 from Councillor Tara Deacy

That this committee agree that Dublin City Council (DCC) offers technical and financial support to community-led greening projects like "Bloomin' Crumlin". All of the greening projects in DCC to date are based within the canal and it is important that areas outside of the canal can develop and benefit from greening strategies.

Emergency Motion 1 from Councillors James Geoghegan and Paddy McCartan

That the South East Area Committee direct the Chief Executive of Dublin City Council, in consultation with the National Transport Agency, to give full consideration to the attached ‘STRAND ROAD TRIAL RAPID DEPLOYMENT CYCLE ROUTE – AN ALTERNATIVE PROPOSAL 5 October 2020’ and deliver a full feasibility report on the alternative proposal prior to the commencement of the trial of the current one.’

Taken with Item 1 and Emergency Motion 2. Order: Report to Councillor.

 

Emergency Motion 2 from Councillors Dermot Lacey and Claire O’Connor

This committee notes the serious and constructive work engaged in by the STC Community Group (Serpentine Avenue/Tritonville Road, Claremont and other adjoining roads) in preparing the Strand Road Trial Rapid Deployment Cycle Route - An Alternative Proposal and requests the Chief Executive to assess the contents of same prior to any commencement of any cycleway proposal for the Strand Road. The committee also acknowledges with gratitude the input to the process to date from many others including the long standing Sandymount and Merrion Residents’ Association.

 

The committee further agrees that it will meet as required over the coming months either in full plenary session or alternative area or workshop type meetings with officials and other interested parties to discuss these and alternative proposals.

Taken with Item 1 and Emergency Motion 1. Order: Report to Councillor.
