Motions

6a

Motion in the name of Councillor John Lyons

That this council expresses support to explore other uses of the underpass site located across from Northside Shopping Centre, such as a playground, skatepark or other much needed community facilities.

 

6b

Motion in the name of Councillor Damian O'Farrell

That this local area committee who last month agreed that ‘all day’ paid car parking would cease at the Hollybrook Road car park at Clontarf Promenade Park in the interests of park users, joggers, walkers, fitness enthusiasts, dog walkers and local businesses now call on DCC to further utilise this Hollybrook Road car parking space by introducing ‘max three hour’ parking only.  This is the case with the Vernon Ave car park.  This uniformity of car parking at Clontarf Promenade Park will create further opportunities / space for our amenity to be enjoyed by park users.

 

6c

Motion in the name of Councillor John Lyons

This area committee recognises the on-going and valuable commitment of the Clongriffin Community Association members to improving and enhancing their local community and supports their request for the installation of a new ability swing in Fr.Collins Park as well as the provision of designated wheelchair parking spaces at Fr. Collins Park.

 

 

6d

Motion in the name of Councillor Jane Horgan Jones

That the area manager engages with the Parks Department, Central Government, and local residents to provide an ability swing in Fr Collins Park, similar to the facility provided by Dun Laoghaire-Rathdown County Council in Cabinteely Park.

 

6e

Motion in the name of Councillor Racheal Batten

That this area committee will write to the minister for Sports and Local government seeking funding for repair works to be done in this facility noting the acting Area Managers response from last month’s 6f motion.

 

“6f        Motion in the name of Councillor Racheal Batten

 

That this Area committee ask the Area Manager to investigate the possibility of having outdoor dining seating area in Ellenfield Park. I the council does not believe that it can facilitate a refreshment percent building that they explore the option of providing a permit to a mobile refreshment provider to ensure that the park is to be utilised as best as possible.

 

6f

Motion in the name of Councillor Tom Brabazon

That this area committee calls upon the manager to urgently provide additional needs access play equipment for Father Collins Park such as a roundabout and/or bouncy bridge  or both.

 

6g

Motion in the name of Councillor Racheal Batten

That this area committee would write to the NTA and seek a review of their current transport plan, to include a fast link rail line from the metro stop in Santry north wood to the facility of Beaumont Hospital. This would cater for the residence proposed in the Oscar Traynor development and assist with proper public transport on the Oscar Traynor road west which suffers from large congestion at present.

 

6h

Motion in the name of Councillor John Lyons

To ask for a report on the DCC/FOLD Milwood Court regeneration project, the phases reached to date, the number and nature of the remaining stages, information on the most recent consultative engagement with affected local stakeholders and the provision of the often requested comprehensive Sunlight/Daylight and Overshadowing reports.

 

6i

Motion in the name of Councillor John Lyons

Co-signed by Cllrs Dearbhail Butler and Cllr Alison Gilliland.

 

Recognising the recent wonderful growth in membership of St.John Vianney FC, especially of young girls, and acknowledging the elected members’ discretionary budget decision to support the club by way of significant works to improve the club's facilities, this Area Committee reaffirms its commitment to St.John Vianney FC and its desire to have new toilet, water and electricity services installed as soon as possible and arrangements secured that will guarantee the club’s winter training can proceed with a minimum of disruption.

 

6j

Motion in the name of Councillor Alison Gililand

The North Central Area Committee recognises the significant levels of traffic on the Oscar Traynor Rd and the high levels of congestion. The North Central Area Committee request that an audit of traffic flow be carried out, in particular the sequencing of traffic lights and traffic sensor boxes, with a view to enhancing traffic flow. This audit should also make recommendations, including the effectiveness of introducing a right filter lane into the Clonshaugh Industrial estate for traffic travelling east/west.

 

6k

Motion in the name of Councillor Larry O'Toole

That this committee requests a report from the manager on the lack of litter bins (and indeed the recent removal of bins) in the Artane Beaumont ward.

 

6l

Motion in the name of Councillor Catherine Stocker

This North Central Area Committee agrees to give Belvedere Football Club access to the portobin at the Clontarf Football pitch for use as a clubhouse until more permanent facilities can be installed and to name the clubhouse after Fergus McCabe, as is the wish of Belvedere FC, as Fergus is one of their founders and a much loved member of the club and community

6m

Motion in the name of Councillor Catherine Stocker

This North Central Area Committee agrees that the DCC football pitch in Clontarf needs to be re-laid. The facility is used by many residents of the North Central Area and has not been upgraded in 11 years, when the life cycle of such pitches is usually 7 years.

6n

Motion in the name of Councillor Catherine Stocker

That this North Central Area Committee agrees to engage meaningfully with a number of residents regarding use of the lane behind their homes on Celtic Park Avenue. Residents with young children are concerned about cars and motorbikes driving at speed through the lane as a shortcut to the road and would like bollards put in place and/or other traffic calming measures to prevent this.

 

6o

Motion in the name of Councillor Damian O'Farrell

That this Area Committee supports the disability community in their continuous fight for access. We request the CEO of DCC to organise with Eir the removal of all newly installed Eir Digital Payphone Units in the city that do not comply with the IWA / Best Practice Access Guidelines.  I contacted the IWA National Access Programme Office post the installation of an Eir Digital Payphone Unit on Annesley Bridge Road, Fairview Dublin 3 and was told this was the first time the issue had been raised with them.  The IWA sent me the Best Practice Assess Guidelines below which stipulates a clear path width of 2000mm.  The Eir Digital Payphone Unit in Fairview as an example has a clear path width of 1780mm on one side and 1330mm on the other. i.e. the unit is in the middle of the footpath and clearly doesn't comply with the IWA  Access Guidelines and should be removed without further delay.    

. 

Irish Wheelchair Association /Best Practice  Access Guidelines

4.2.2.6 Street Furniture The careful positioning of street furniture provides good access and reduces potential hazards. Street furniture and signage should always be located either close to, or recessed into, the inner shoreline (that is, a wall, fence or building), or alternatively, on the kerb edge, leaving the middle of the pavement clear. A clear path width of preferably 2000mm should be maintained along the circulation route. Temporary street furniture on pavements, such as shop displays, sandwich boards and utility bins should be placed out of the way of the pedestrian route and maintained in that position. Any temporary street furniture that encroaches into the clear width of the pedestrian route should be reported to the local authority and removed. If free standing posts or columns are unavoidably located within access routes these should incorporate a band of contrasting colour at a height of 1500-1650mm. An additional band at a height of 850-1000mm is recommended. However, as a continuous clear path width of 2000mm is required, this situation ought not to occur. Cycle parking must be kept clear of pedestrian routes.

 

4.2.2.7 Hazard Protection The swing of doors and windows, and the location of vending machines, public telephones, etc, should not extend into any access route. 

6p

Motion in the name of Councillor John Lyons

Noting the poor condition of many footpaths the Kilmore West area, and in particular the poor job done recently on the footpath along the Oscar Traynor Road from Dundaniel Road down to Northside Shopping Centre, this Area Committee calls for a report on the contractors used to carry out such works, the level of oversight and quality control conducted by the city council with each job and further calls for a survey to be conducted on the state of the footpaths in the Kilmore West area with a view to carrying out a comprehensive footpath repair works programme.

 

6q

Motion in the name of Councillor Donna Cooney

That North Central Area committee express grave concern on the protection on the North Bull Island flora and fauna after the recent June bank holiday fire in the dunes, which is the 4th in 2021, that we seek urgent action to protect this nature reserve and the ground nesting birds, be it full time wardens, monitors to alert Garda and emergency service to illegal activities, that this biosphere should be a coexistence between people and nature, but a some illegal activities are destroying the habitat through fires, dumping of litter, plastic, masks killing puffins etc and unless something is done urgently we could see a ecological disaster with so many protected species inhabiting or visiting bull Island. That the minister for heritage is invited to the next bull island oversight group to see what assistance the department can make to help protect Bull Island nature reserve. 

 

6r

Motion in the name of Councillor Donna Cooney

That recycling deposit containers like those installed on Howth harbour are placed in areas in North Central area, example Fairview Park, the promenade, entrance to Bull Island were there are large numbers of people with recyclable containers plastic bottles etc.

6s

Motion in the name of Councillor Naoise O'Muiri

That this Area Committee supports the delivery of improved access arrangements and facilities for the Bull Island Causeway via a new Part 8 process.
