Motion in the name of Councillor John Lyons

“To ask that this Area Committee supports the recent public safety proposal from the Transportation and Traffic SPC setting the default speed limit throughout the North Central administrative area and indeed the wider city at 30km/hr.”



Motion in the name of Councillor Donna Cooney

“To ask the manager to support a review of the whole public domain be conducted to look at suitable solutions and a plan (using Covid mobility funding), to create safe active transport routes for all abilities due to many of the pavements being very broken and narrow throughout the Killester area.”



Motion in the name of Councillor Donna Cooney

“To ask the manager that this committee agree that safe 30 KMPH residential zones with signage be extended to other areas in Donnycarney East to Grace Park Meadows, Donnycarney Road, Oak Road, Hazel Road and Holly Road.”



Motion in the name of Councillor Donna Cooney

“To ask the manager can we actively seek alternative funding/borrowing for example EU green recovery funds to make Fairview park (which is a much needed amenity for North Central and North inner city) into a much improved green flag park.


The Councillor is concerned that due to funding constraints in Dublin City Council that the Tea rooms project in Fairview Park and other works to upgrade the playground may now be postponed.”



Motion in the name of Councillor Naoise O Muiri

“To ask the Manager that this Area Committee expresses a Motion of Thanks on behalf of all users of St. Anne’s Park to the management and staff of the Park for the tremendous work they are doing to make the Park such a delight and a pleasurable experience for all citizens, in all weather conditions and during all daylight hours.”
