April 2022 Motions

DUBLIN CITY COUNCIL

SOUTH CENTRAL AREA COMMITTEE

20th April 2022

 

M164   Councillor Máire Devine

Given that the Donore Community Centre, Dublin 8 will not be operational for the foreseeable, this committee express frustration at the delay in providing an alternative space and agree to the immediate provision of temporary community spaces.  We recommend investigating vacant properties like the units at The Barley House, Cork Street which could be rented and adapted for “meantime” use.

 It is essential to provide these space(s) immediately, it is prudent and doable.

 

M165   Councillor Máire Devine

That this Committee has consistently sought spaces for community groups in the Dublin 8 area. It is long acknowledged by all stakeholders that community facilities are very poorly served here and it is a priority need for the area. We therefore recommend that the space in the new Bonham Street social housing scheme be allocated as community space.

M166   Councillor Máire Devine

The soon-to-be opened Bridgefoot Street Park’s access from the Oliver Bond side needs to be made safer. This stretch of road has a traffic flow system that is congested and confusing for some, especially the children trying to access the new park. A pedestrian crossing and/or other measures need to be considered for Bridgefoot Street so children can safely cross to enjoy the fabulous leisure amenity.

 

M167   Councillor Vincent Jackson

That due to the fact East Timor Park Lower Ballyfermot Dublin 10 is now 25 years old since Dublin City Council agreed to re-name it in honour of the plight of the people of East Timor who were fighting the might of the Indonesian military who invaded in 1975 and massacred thousands of people that Dublin City Council replace the name stone plaque, erect a flagpole and support a small celebration we hope to have in the coming months. A great native of Ballyfermot Tom Hyland a former Dublin bus driver led a huge international campaign to highlight the plight of the East Timorese people following a BBC undercover programme presented by John Pillinger.

 

 

M168   Councillor Vincent Jackson

In view of the spiralling cost of fuels most people heat their homes with ie, Natural Gas, Oil and Electricity that the real and substantial issue of fuel poverty be brought to the fore at national government level.  With the current price structure and anticipated cost increases going forward, people will die from hyperthermia and live in abject poverty if we as a society cannot address these real issues which are unfolding in front of our eyes.  It lessens our capacity to call ourselves a first world country. If agreed I am asking we forward to the Department of Environment and Local Government.

 

 

M169   Councillors Daithí Doolan and Hazel De Nortiún

The South Central Area Committee congratulations all those involved in Cherry Blossom. A month long series of events committed to celebrating all that's good in the Cherry Orchard community.
