Motions

Motion 1 from Councillor Sophie Nicoullaud

That the Director of Services recognises the major asset that Crumlin Swimming pool is for this wide part of the city which includes Drimnagh, Bluebell, Walkinstown and beyond and that the pool needs to be used to its full capacity for the maximum of people and clubs to be able to use it. To do so opening hours need to be extended for the public to be able to use on a daily basis at any time of the day and for clubs to be able to run classes on a daily basis also. That OAP be given extras slots on a daily basis.

 

Motion 2 from Councillor Dermot Lacey

This Committee request the Manager to respond positively to the request regarding trees in the Brookfield Estate as outlined below:

“If they were pruned back it would save the residents huge numbers of hours during the year cleaning up the roads and paths of leaves. It would make it much safer for us and our property too as the street lighting would be more effective if there was less foliage and height on the trees.”

 

Motion 3 from Councillors Dermot Lacey and Mary Freehill

In the interests of good planning and upholding the integrity of the City Development Plan in the minds of citizens, this committee agrees to write to the Minister for Housing and Local Government to withdraw the Specific Planning Policy Requirements provisions that enable ministerial guidelines to override such plans and lead to the probability of An Bord Pleanála continuing to ignore democratically agreed city and county development plans. The committee agrees to circulate this motion to all Councillors to encourage a united approach on this issue. Furthermore we call on the Lord Mayor to request an urgent meeting with the Minister for Housing on behalf of DCC to request the termination of the use of these powers.

 

Motion 4 from Councillor Tara Deacy

That this committee agrees to trial the ‘Fix your street’ initiative in the Kimmage/Rathmines ward, similar to the model rolled out in South County Dublin.  This process would allow the general public to lodge/report issues such as graffiti, leaks and drainage, litter and illegal dumping, road and path defects etc.

 

Motion 5 from Councillor James Geoghegan

That the Area Committee agrees;

Ø  to request the relevant department in Dublin City Council to pilot the reassignment or creation of a parking space which could be marked with ‘Hidden Disability’ as a courtesy space for use by those with a sensory disability as done by Waterford Council in Dungarvan as per the image attached; and

Ø  that the pilot parking space would be located adjacent to Tesco in Sandymount Village and that the Area Office would write to the Tesco Sandymount manager seeking its support for the initiative; and

Ø  that where necessary, the relevant department in Dublin City Council would engage with ‘Neurodiversity Sandymount’ in the piloting of this parking space.
