Motion in the name of Councillor Caroline Conroy

In light of our Climate crisis and the fact that DCC have signed up to tackle this.  Can we urgently look at lands that are not suitable for building and earmark these for planting Irish native trees.  This will not cost DCC as I’ve been approached by a number of NGO’s offering to provide the trees and to organise volunteers to plant these.  This is an excellent opportunity and is a win win for biodiversity, flood prevention, improved air quality, water filtration, an amenity for the community and making the Northside greener.  We have time now to get ready for the next tree planting season for this coming year.

Motion in the name of Councillor Caroline Conroy

To ask the Manager can we trial a Water Fountain in each of our main Parks in NWA.  This is urgently needed as the increase in numbers visiting our parks and the amount of outdoor exercise that is taking place. This will help reduce plastic waste, and provide park users with a cheaper and more environmentally sustainable source of fresh water. 

 

18.

Motion in the name of Councillor Keith Connolly

That this committee seeks an improvement in the poor standard of grass cutting by private contractors throughout the Finglas-Ballymun LEA. I have had numerous reports of large chunks of grass and weeds being left behind after a cut, rubbish not being cleared in advance and a general level of carelessness when the work is being carried out.

 

19.

Motion in the name of Councillor Anthony Connaghan

That Dublin City Council provides a comprehensive report on the projected needs of sporting bodies in the area and agrees to work toward ensuring all clubs are catered for in terms of playing facilities.
