M303   Councillor Hazel de Nortúin

The residents in Riverview Court in Chapelizod have been requesting that DCC engage with their Housing needs. This Committee agrees that DCC should conduct a review of the complex with the potential to identify any upgrades that are needed.


M304   Councillor Máire Devine 

This Committee notes the stated intent to provide an “incidental space/pocket park” at St Luke’s Avenue as agreed in 2022 and seeks an update on the progress of this. 


M305   Councillor Máire Devine

This Committee is aware that the parking/traffic issues in the D8 area surrounding the National Stadium remain unresolved and again seeks a meeting with local residents and the Stadium’s event management.


M306   Councillor Máire Devine

This Committee acknowledges the work of DCC, Uisce Éireann and local reps who worked together over the Christmas period to restore water supply at several locations in D8. Can members be provided with a report that explains the issues and the solutions.


M307   Councillor Sophie Nicoullaud

That the Parks Department agree to protect existing public trees by demanding that buildings be pushed back away from mature trees. It happened here, it happened in Brickfield and it is not good enough. We are losing years of environmental benefits from existing mature trees. Younger trees don't store as much CO2. That this council demands from the main contractor that mature trees be replacing the existing trees. To ask that the new trees be planted further back from the building in order to let the trees grow better.


M308   Councillor Sophie Nicoullaud

That this Area Committee back up the creation of a social enterprise for Cherry Orchard. That the Director of Services share what progress has been made to introduce a space for social enterprise in Cherry Orchard. Has DCC conducted research on what social enterprise type is most needed? What type of social enterprise has been looked at so far? That this committee make a case for a community shared kitchen to be included as a social enterprise /business plan to consider.


M309   Councillor Vincent Jackson

That the De Paul Trust be asked to provide an urgent management / maintenance schedule in relation to the homeless wet hostel operated at James Street / Stevens Lane Dublin 8. The whole complex is in serious needs of cleaning and regular maintenance. For a building which is relatively new, little maintenance ever takes place here, shoddy waste in windows, weeds growing out of once flower boxes is all that the local community see. It is something that could be sorted out very easily with good local management.


M310   Councillor Vincent Jackson

That this Committee agrees to invite the Board of Management representatives of Ballyfermot Resource Centre Ballyfermot Road Dublin 10 into the next SCAC to give a presentation on the serious problems they are having with construction traffic. Lack of car-parking, cycle lanes etc.
