Motion in the name of Councillor Anthony Connaghan

That this Area Committee agrees to instigate the process of extinguishing a right of way at the junction of Ballygall Avenue and Ballygall Road West. This would close off this road as a rat run for motor vehicles but would still allow pedestrians and cyclists to use as a through way.

 

5.

Motion in the name of Councillor Caroline Conroy

To ask the Manager can a traffic survey be carried out in the Hillcrest area, the area experiences high traffic volumes during peak times, school drop offs and collections.This is cause for concern for the residents living in that area around safety and air pollution.Because the secondary school opens its gates into the estate it means that cars come in volumes to drop off students and at collection times.Also there are two local primary schools in the area which means people use the estate to get to these schools quickly rather than use the main roads.

7.

Motion in the name of Councillor Caroline Conroy

To ask this Area Committee to support the protection of the old St. Margaret’s Road which is closed off now due to the building of the North City Depot as a living heritage trail.This road is a valuable site for its heritage and biodiversity for Ballymun.It is the last of our heritage hedgerows and there is a 300yr old Ash on that site.

 

This road is one of the few parts of Ballymun that still exits prior to the development of Ballymun in the 1960’s. It is part of our living heritage. The old road can be part of a walking trail having an amenity, educational, heritage as well as a biodiversity value to the local communities.

 

Although parts of the old hedgerow is in poor condition, with appropriate management, it can be rejuvenated enhancing its biodiversity value. It would be a great way to demonstrate how the landscape of Ballymun looked prior to the 1960’s when it was a rural area. This is the last piece of the old rural roads of Ballymun which has huge living heritage value. There is so little left at this stage of Ballymun's heritage.
