4.

Motion in the names of Cllrs Anthony Connaghan, Caroline Conroy, Noeleen Reilly, Keith Connolly, Briege MacOscar and Mary Callaghan

That this Area Committee requests an immediate formal variation to the Dublin City Development Plan 2016-2022 to rezone significantly underutilised lands between McKee Avenue and Jamestown Road to the South of the Industrial Zone in North Finglas from Z6 to Z10, acknowledging the urgent need to zone adequate land for housing and mixed uses to meet the demands of the City and to rejuvenate and revitalise key district centres by supporting a more efficient land usage on lands offering diminished employment opportunities

5.

Motion in the name of Councillor Anthony Connaghan

That the Area Manager investigates the possibility of providing a small scale Senior Citizen complex which would include a community room for local use on the area outside the allotments in Prospect Hill.

Area Wide Matters

9.

Motion in the name of Councillor Caroline Conroy

In light of the current ongoing problem of littering in all parks in Dublin North West
and that the majority of this litter is recyclable and is ending up in general waste
(landfill and/or Incineration). I ask that the Manager puts in place bins for separate
items of litter - glass bin, plastic/paper/cans bin and a general waste bin until a
deposit return scheme is in place to help reduce these problems.

10.

Motion in the name of Councillor Caroline Conroy

To ask the Manager to carry out a survey of teenagers in the DNW area to investigate what they would like and what would be of benefit to them in public areas/parks so that they feel included in the community.

11.

Motion in the name of Councillor Caroline Conroy

To ask the Manager to put in place wider footpaths and wider cycle lanes in the localities which are segregated from cars for the upcoming return to school in September. Social distancing is likely to be in place for a very long time, resulting in a reduced use of public transport and an increase in car use. This will have a negative effect on our communities due to increased traffic congestion and poor air quality. One way to combat this is to encourage more people to walk and cycle to school and work safely.

12.

Nomination for North Dublin Development Coalition CLG (NORDECO) (2 members, 1 position to be filled).
