M312   Councillor Kelsey May Daly

That this Area Committee recognises the invaluable work done in Warrenmount Adult Education Centre since 1995 to provide education to adult learners. The centre is a highly relied on resource for community engagement and accessible education and its closure would result in hundreds of displaced learners and tutors alike with no other clear option for relocation. Therefore, this Area Committee calls on Dublin City Council to acquire the premises to ensure that it remains a centre of education for the community. 


M313   Councillor Kelsey May Daly

That this Area Committee directs the Director of Services to explore options to open the green space at the St Teresa's Gardens site to the public this summer and to present options at the next area committee. The community is negatively impacted by the dire lack of green spaces for children and families and therefore the council should consider any options including the Teresa’s Gardens site, available to make space for recreation with the upcoming outdoor season. 


M314  Councillor Sophie Nicoullaud

For this Committee to support the request from local social workers among others to add more 3 beds in the Emmet Road Project. That this Committee writes to the Minister for Housing expressing our support and asking for his support to provide housing for families.


M315   Councillor Vincent Jackson

That Dublin City Council please look at using the new government legislation in relation use of CCTV to deter fly-tipping of waste to install cameras in the lane way from Kylemore Road Ballyfermot to Thomond Road. Neighbours are fed up with the constant filth and dirt those people dumping are responsible for. Can some of the waste be checked to see if we can find those responsible adjoining gardens are left with litter and odours from this very busy laneway.


M316   Councillor Vincent Jackson

That Dublin City Council seek to preserve all the various archaeological finds recently discovered whilst construction of the new apartments takes place on the Old De La Salle Monastery and School site at Ballyfermot Road Dublin 10. Can DCC please indicate who will be responsible to ensure that all finds are properly recorded and documented? The Ballyfermot Heritage Group is very worried that the needs of the contractor will take precedent over the need to archive and record human remains etc. which we believe are now located on this vast site.


M317   Councillor Máire Devine

This Committee is concerned at the number of established trees that have become damaged by construction works and subsequently are recommended for removal. We ask that the planning conditions for proposed developments be expanded so that trees are more robustly protected, regularly inspected and increased fines be included in any granted planning applications.



M318   Councillor Máire Devine

This Committee recognises that with the significant developments in Dublin 8, especially the National Children’s Hospital & St. James Hospital campus, parking availability for local residents has been very challenging. We recommend that  ...  view the full agenda text for item 7.
