Motions

6a

Motion in the name of Councillor Catherine Stocker

That this area committee agrees that the wooden bridge access to Bull Island should be closed to cars (excepting residents, golf club and disability access) to improve safety and quality of experience until such time as community consultation can be undertaken.

 

 

6b

Motion in the name of Councillor Donna Cooney

Welcoming the newly published Dublin City Council and Transport Authority Covid Mobility report with an ambitious plan to increase active transport to 89,000 commuters in the city, could this NC area request that Dublin City council agree to quickly expanding measures into the suburbs to link up with routes into the city, for example Fairview which is the second busiest for walking and cycling numbers in the city yet has a high level of serious road injuries, with the Malahide, Howth and Clontarf road feeding into Fairview, it also have six lanes of traffic (so plenty of room to expand the pavements on both sides and two way protected cycle ways) as temporary measures awaiting completion of the new C2CC also Eastwall road and Alfie Byrne road, protection of cycle lanes there and all Collins Avenue before schools and DCU reopen in September, also to extend 30k zone to The Bull Island causeway or 10k under park by-laws and protected clearly marked cycleway and walkway, to limit car parking on both the causeway and wooden bridge entrance to applied for permit only, with a possible shuttle bus along the causeway during bathing season, also to make Vernon avenue by the shops and restaurants at the Coast end one way with expanded pavement and safe cycling, only loading bay and only disability parking.

 

6c

Motion in the name of Councillor John Lyons

This area committee believes that the introduction of the Strategic Housing Development legislation in Dec 2016 has resulted in a vastly diminished planning system that has disenfranchised locally elected representatives and the Irish public, allowed private interests to by-pass local-authority development plans and local area plans, is less transparent and has failed in its stated objective of "fast-tracking" housing; therefore, this committee calls on national government and the relevant minister to repeal the Planning and Development (Housing) and Residential Tenancies Act 2016 and the Planning and Development (Strategic Housing Development) Regulations 2017, return  the planning powers to the local authorities and restore democracy to the planning system.

 

If passed by this area committee, the motion will be sent to the Housing SPC and a letter written to the Department of Housing, Planning and Local Government informing it of our stated position and intention. 

 

6d

Motion in the name of Councillor Alison Gilliland

The North Central Area Committee recognises the significant level of vehicular and pedestrian use along the Oscar Traynor Rd. The North Central Area Committee recognises the significant level of development that will take place along this axis of this road in the near future - Santry developments, development on the Lawrence Lands, Cromcastle Court redevelopment, the underpass site, Bunratty Phase 3 and the Chivers site development. Given the importance of this route the North Central Area Committee seeks that a comprehensive traffic, transport and public realm plan be put in place to upgrade and  develop this route in a sustainable way that future proofs its aspect and use for the next decade.
