Motions 14th November 2022

Motion 1 Councillor Dermot Lacey

This committee requests the Manager to arrange for a presentation to Councillors on this plan for Major Flood Defence Proposals along the Dodder to Councillors as outlined in the extract from an article submitted with this Motion.



Dublin City Council is advancing plans to enhance flood protection on the River Dodder from Waldron’s Bridge, Churchtown, to Clonskeagh Bridge.

Contractors …………..have presented the Council with proposals for this flood protection which has been in the offing for decades.

Scully’s Field, the wild plot of land which stretches from Strand Terrace in Milltown to Farmer Brown’s in Clonskeagh has been largely left alone to act as a “flood plain” as an undeveloped site.

A flood defence wall to protect Shanagarry Apartments, just beyond the Packhorse Bridge on the city side of the river, is now set around the apartments rather than between the river and the riverside path.

New flood walls are proposed for several sites: to protect the car park at Farmer Browns beside Clonskeagh Bridge where “glass panels” are to be installed so we can see the river as the wall could be up to 3.1 metre high; between the river and the path at Strand Terrace in Milltown there will be a wall up to 2.2 metres high (at the entrance to the Scully’s Field walk), which will end in a large embankment along the side of Milltown car park; new walls up to 1.5 metres high are proposed to enclose Milltown Green opposite Milltown Church, being built between the road and the park and between the river and the park - New or enhanced walls travelling upriver do seem to follow the line of existing walls on the Milltown Road and at the Dropping Well Pub there is a new wall between the pub car park and the river but at least not between the river and the river walk.  The flood defence walls to protect the houses on the hill between the Dye Works and Dartry Park seem to run along the river bank and are up to 1.6 metres high. 


Motion 2 Councillor Dermot Lacey

Given the impact of the Belmont Avenue Traffic Calming scheme this Committee requests the Traffic Department to begin to examine an appropriate scheme for the parallel Marlborough Road.


Motion 3 Councillor Claire Byrne formerly Mot 19 October 2022 deferred

That this Area Committee calls on the Area Manager to outline what measures are being undertaken to address the ongoing issue of the misuse of tarmac being dumped on the footpaths around the South East Inner City as an interim fix which is unsightly and a trip hazard. Can the Area Manager please outline why this is seems to be the preferred practice of Dublin City Council  rather than proper fixing of footpaths and when what can  be done to put an end to this and to fix the footpaths in the area properly to make it safer and more attractive.
