May 2021 Motions.

DUBLIN CITY COUNCIL

SOUTH CENTRAL AREA COMMITTEE

19th May 2021

 

M98     Councillor Hazel de Nortúin (Motion deferred from April meeting). 

Following on from the report: Rapid Assessment and Community Response to suicide and suspected suicide in Dublin South - commissioned after the rise in suicides in the Ballyfermot area, one of the further research pieces was around the connection between suicide in young women and domestic violence.  Since then we've entered into a pandemic and we've seen a clear increase in domestic violence as one of the underlying conditions of the restriction of movement. Ballyfermot/Cherry Orchard doesn't have its own dedicated Domestic Violence worker and relies on the services in other areas.

I'm asking that Dublin City Council, with support of the members, write to the Tusla DSGBV and support the call for a Domestic Violence Worker dedicated to the Dublin 10 area - for reasons outlined. 

Also that Dublin City Council provides a space within their properties in Ballyfermot and Cherry Orchard to ensure ease of access to this much needed service.

 

M108  Councillor Darragh Moriarty

That this Area Committee welcomes the long-awaited development of the derelict site at the corner of Dolphins Barn/South Circular Road for public housing and calls for Dublin City Council to explore and exhaust all opportunities available to provide a public or community service at ground-floor level. The Cork Street, Dolphins Barn and Fatima areas are full of apartment developments with vacant ground-floor commercial units. This Area Committee is of the view that a community use at this prime ground-floor location could inject much-needed life into Dolphins Barn village. 

 

 

M109   Councillor Darragh Moriarty

That this Area Committee calls on Dublin City Council to immediately reverse plans not to include a 5-aside community sports amenity in the Emmet Rd development (St. Michael’s Estate). This Area Committee expresses its strong opposition to this measure which would see an existing sports facility, which is used by local residents, stripped away from this community and not replaced. Previous draft plans in 2018 and 2019 included a community sports facility and this Area Committee calls for that commitment to be honoured. 

 

M110   Councillor Máire Devine

That this Area Committee is shocked and dismayed by the recent murder at Robinsons Court of one of our tenants. This complex is for our seniors, many who are vulnerable and very distressed by this fatal incident. Is there a safety audit available for this community and what safety measures, if any, would make the complex more secure? Furthermore what protocols are in place to support residents following calamitous occurrences? We extend our deepest condolences to his family, friends and his community.
