Emergency Motions

Minutes:

Standing orders was suspended to deal with the following Emergency            

motions: -

 

Emergency Motion from Cllr. Greg Kelly, Cllr. Ray McHugh and Cllr. Daithí Doolan

This Area Committee offers our deepest sympathy to the family in Tyrone Place who were taken to hospital as a result of a fire in their flat. We wish them all a full and speedy recovery.
We want to praise their neighbours, the emergency services and Dublin City Council staff who all responded with great speed to the emergency.
We call on Dublin City Council to carry out, as a matter of urgency, a full review of fire safety and prevention in Tyrone Place, including the provision of escape routes for the residents.
This report will be made public and an action plan agreed.

 Order: Agreed

 

Emergency motion from Cllr Críona Dhálaigh

Given that the new national children's hospital is a national strategic infrastructure on such a large scale, that every effort be made to reduce the stress,  inconvenience and safety to local community and that all opportunities to lessen impact on their quality of life be taken, such as, DCC to check if resident parking permit applications can be fast- tracked and, if it is possible, to extend premium parking bands to local area, due to the huge increase in construction workers and hospital staff parking in and around the site making it almost impossible for residents to park.

 

That Sunday working permits not be granted on a consistent basis - residents have to put up with the works taking place on the hospital site which is difficult enough, but regularly now, on Saturdays and Sundays, licences are being granted to utility companies which means the residents seldom get any respite from works in their area.

Order: Agreed

September 2017 Motions

Minutes:

DUBLIN CITY COUNCIL

SOUTH CENTRAL AREA COMMITTEE

20th September 2017

 

 

534      Councillor Tina MacVeigh (as amended 20/9/17)

In the interest of equality and realizing the reproductive rights of women in Dublin South Central, this Area Committee agrees that the 8th Amendment should be repealed, that a referendum be held in the spring and calls on people to support a broad inclusive campaign for the Repeal of the 8th Amendment.

Order:Agreed without debate. Cllr McHugh wished it noted that he was not agreeing to this motion.

 

535      Councillor Hazel de Nortuin

Given the recent rise of suicides in Ballyfermot, this Area Committee sends its condolences to the friends and families of those affected. This Area Committee also recognises all of the supports and services in place and will help, when possible, to fund any initiative to highlight these services to those in need.

Order:Agreed

 

536      Councillor Greg Kelly

This Area Committee calls on the OPW to engage with DCC Housing in putting forward PP for the joint building of  Housing units on the OPW site in Jamestown Road, Inchicore, that was planned in 2003. With the current housing crises all state agencies and local authorities need to be working together.

Order:Agreed

 

537      Councillor Paul Hand

That this Area Committee is concerned at the ageing and decaying freshwater, wastewater and drainage infrastructure in Chapelizod Village from Main Street to Martins Row and all buildings adjoining. Water pressure here is extremely low in places, occasionally there is a smell from the wastewater system and drainage along the road is inadequate, often leading to flash flooding and water ponding. I would request that the contents of this motion be forwarded to the relevant Departments in DCC and Irish Water for consideration and for necessary action to be taken to upgrade necessary infrastructure in Chapelizod.

Order:Agreed without debate. 

 

538      Councillor Vincent Jackson

The recent opening of another Bookmakers outlet at Ballyfermot Road, in an outlet used previously as an ESB Electric shop, a Bank and a Bookmakers, shows how important it is that DCC develop a retail strategy for suburban shopping areas like Ballyfermot, to stop the proliferation of similar use shops. Ballyfermot now has more Chemists, Take-aways and Bookmakers than any area in Ireland, however we are destroying the retail mix and we in DCC need to become pro-active and insist all development needs planning permission when re-opening / re-development, to help correct this imbalance.

Order:Report to Councillor.

 

 

 

 

539      Councillor Daithí Doolan

The South Central Area Committee supports the call for an out of hours mental health care service for Ballyfermot and we urge local services and statutory agencies to work together with the community to establish this service as soon as possible.

Order:Agreed

 

540      Councillor Tina MacVeigh

That, as agreed in meetings to discuss discretionary fund expenditure earlier this year, this Area Committee will fund research commissioned by the community sector in Dublin South Central so as to assess the  ...  view the full minutes text for item 8.
