Motion 1 from Councillor Dermot Lacey
This committee requests that a working group be established to review future use of the former School of Music building now vacated by the CDETB which could include cultural use such as artists’ studios, exhibition space, music celebration and much more and requests the Chief Executive to ensure that no proposal for a disposal of this building be brought to council prior to such a working group making a recommendation to council.
Motion 2 from Councillor Paddy McCartan
That the South East Area Committee welcome the proposed Ringsend District Heating System which will use hot water produced by the incinerator to pump heat directly to homes. Given that the incinerator has the potential to heat 60% more homes than originally proposed, that Sandymount and its environs be added to the areas already included of Poolbeg, Ringsend, Irishtown and Docklands.
Motion 3 from Councillor Mary Freehill
That the Traffic Department examines the pedestrian crossing beside Harold’s Cross Park. The new school on Harold’s Cross Road has considerably increased the child pedestrian traffic to the park, so the positioning of the crossing along with the issue of traffic emerging from the slip road at the top of the park coming from Lower Kimmage Road adds to safety issues and raises the question of whether the current crossing is fit for purpose.
Motion 4 from Councillor Mary Freehill
That we receive a report on grass cutting practices. Since grass cutting has been contracted out, it seems that grass is cut with a machine that cannot deal with edges corners. It is agreed therefore by this committee that DCC revisits its maintenance standards in this regard which will bring about an improvement in grass maintenance.
Motion 5 from Councillor Mary Freehill
I refer to a motion I tabled to this committee over a year ago asking that the public seating be updated at the Swan Leisure Centre. So far nothing has been done furthermore it is important that the current seating is positioned in a way that it allows for tables and chairs outside the Leisure Centre, especially in the current climate. It is again agreed that the council act on our already agreed motion in this regard.
Motion 6 from Councillor Mary Freehill
That this committee agrees to offer Kimmage Rathmines as a pilot area for Wi-Fi to be installed in all public parks (HX Park already agreed) and public areas i.e. the Swan Plaza and that we work with Smart Cities to install notice boards that can update residents of services and events. It may be necessary to set up a working group to monitor the process of this pilot.
Motion 7 from Councillors Anne Feeney, Carolyn Moore, Pat Dunne and Tara Deacy
That this Committee requires the Head of Traffic and Transport and the Head of Parks to provide Councillors representing the Kimmage Rathmines LEA, to present clear parking and traffic management options for trialling in Rathdown, Terenure, as a matter of urgency.
