Items for following meeting




Motion in the name of Councillor Tom Brabazon

That this Area Committee instructs  the Chief Executive and calls upon the Chief Executive of the NTA to carry out the democratic will of this Council as expressed by the amendment of the Housing Land Initiative Report of on fhe 9th January 2017.  This report was the foundation document of the Procurement and Disposal Process of  the Oscar Traynor Road site which was passed by a 100% vote by Councillors in favour of the amendment on the 9th January 2017, the wording of which was (in bold)  below:

“Dublin City Council has recently met with residents of Lorcan Estate and public representatives from the North West and North Central Area. It is proposed to put in place a Local Consultative Forum to ensure that there is fair and ongoing engagement and consultation with Community Interests in the area. The exact consultation structure can be agreed between the Area Committees and the local Area Managers and their teams but will include representatives of Lorcan Estate, Castletimon Estate, Woodlawn Estate, Aulden Grange Estate, Santry Court Estate and Gaelscoil Cholmcille1. This forum will be consulted by those drawing up the statutory Master Plan. 2.The Masterplan will then be presented to the City Council for approval.”


As neither 1: 1. This forum will be consulted by those drawing up the statutory Master Plan

 nor 2: 2.The Masterplan will then be presented to the City Council for approval.”

have ever been completed, it is incumbent upon the Chief Executive to complete these two steps immediately and should have done so  “before” the Oscar Traynor Road was presented for disposal. 




Motion in the name of Cllr. Declan Flanagan

“To ask the Manager can an audit be carried out on all traffic lights in the North Central area to make sure they are operating efficiently and correctly. Can 'smart traffic light systems' be introduced in some key areas in the North Central area”



Motion in the name of Councillor John Lyons

“Recognising and welcoming the numerous residential developments and sites  along either side of Coolock Lane, Oscar Traynor Road and its environs that are currently under construction, at design stage or preliminary planning stage and aware also of the potential additional pressures on the road network that these developments will generate, this area committee calls on Dublin City Council to liaise with all relevant stakeholders with the aim of connecting the R104 to the R139/M50/M1 by opening up the private road that runs through the Clonshaugh Business and Technology Park.”



Motion in the name of Councillor Donna Cooney

“To request that lamp post no. 21 on Watermill road which is in the centre of a narrow pavement is moved to the side of the road to prevent obstruction to pedestrians, that widening the pavement is done immediately until the lamp post can be relocated” 



Motion in the name of Councillor Donna Cooney

“That the leave no trace signage and litter reduction measures/interventions on the Clontarf Promenade that were agreed for introduction in Autumn 2020 are implemented and that this important linear park is given more attention, that the shelter on the sea by the baths is fixed, gullies and drains cleaned water pooling fixed, muddy grassed areas restored, that seating is restored around the large shelter at the boat launch area, that funding is sought to improve this well used and loved public realm, including more amenities, chess tables, picnic tables, water fountains, possibility of changing area for swimmers, the car park by the boat launch is an issue, lighting not working, opposite the bus garage the pavements are very damaged and a danger to people, a plan for this linear park, estimated costs, implementation and maintenance plan” 



Motion in the name of Councillor Donna Cooney

“That more areas for community food growing be provided to address the issues of food security, improve public health and wellbeing be found throughout Dublin North Central area including repurposing derelict sites, car parks, areas in parks”  



Motion in the name of Councillor Deirdre Heney

“That the Manager outline the situation re installation of CCTV for areas in North Central Area that are hot spots for regular illegal dumping; say what prevents the Council from using CCTV to prosecute continuing offenders of waste management legislation in terms of dumping; what changes (legislative or otherwise) need to be brought about to allow Council to prosecute persons who engage in continuous dumping, and with specific emphasis on the constant dumping of waste on footpath fronting Our Lady of Consolation Church, Donnycarney, he can agree to install CCTV at this location to assist in a prosecution and if he can make a statement, (excluding cost) on that which prevents the City Council for using CCTV to assist in such prosecutions.”  




Motion in the name of Councillor Alison Gilliland

“The North Central Area Committee recognises the increase of dog owning in the area and the knock on increase in dog walking which has given rise to an increase in dog fouling on local footpaths. The North Central Area Committee requests that an anti-dog fouling campaign be rolled out across the area to include additional posters, social media posts, making dog poo bags available in local shops and the presence of a dog warden.”  



Motion in the name of Councillor Alison Gilliland

“The North Central Area Committee recognises both the environmental/biodiversity and health and wellbeing value of green spaces to local residents. Such green areas also provide a space and opportunity for local residents to come together and enhance their local space and by default local community cohesion.  However, the North Central Area Committee also recognises that many local green spaces lack any level of biodiversity or any seating/walking spaces to encourage local residents to more effectively use the green space. Therefore, the North Central Area Committee calls for i) an audit of all green spaces and a ii) reimagining of each green space as an integrated public realm amenity, that this re-imagining would be developed in consultation with the local community.”  



Motion in the name of Councillor Alison Gilliland

“The North Central Area Committee recognises the prevalence of drug related debt intimidation across the local area.  The North Central Area Committee  welcomes access to the Family Support Network and a dedicated Garda inspector for support for those impacted by such intimidation. To increase awareness of these supports the North Central Area Committee calls for a) a local DCC media/social media/leaflet campaign and b) a letter be written to the Minister of State with responsibility for Public Health, Well Being and National Drugs Strategy, Frank Feighan TD, calling for the provision of a confidential helpline for people affected by drug related debt intimidation.”
