Motions

5a

Motion in the name of Councillor John Lyons

 

“This area committee notes that the boat ramp in Clontarf had been accessible and in regular and consistent use by many Dubliners over the last fifty years up until the recent decision of Dublin City Council to restrict the public’s right to access the ramp, is aware of the disappointment and frustration this decision has caused, does not accept the reason given by the council for restricting access to the boat ramp so therefore calls on DCC management to reverse its decision, lift the restrictions and allow the public to access once again the only boat ramp on the north side of the city.”

 

5b

Motion in the name of Councillor Damian O'Farrell

 

“That this area committee requests ‘internal procedures’ are drafted in order to assist councillors and officials through future development plans. Presently, as well as legislation to guide us through a part 8 local authority development we also have internal procedures. The same should apply to development plans.”

 

5c

Motion in the name of Councillor Deirdre Heney

 

Considering the fact that skateboarding is now an Olympic sport, that consideration be given to the provision of some form of low level lighting (similar to that at the playground) be provided at the skate park in Fairview Park, (even up to 5.30pm (November closing time) when skaters use the facility), in order to allow skateboarders practice their sport and that the manager agree to meet with a representative user of the skate park to work through other issues such as the new railing that has been ordered and the gravel path that runs along the border; (gravel and small stones are a skaters worst nightmare as they wedge between their wheels and the smooth concrete and stop the wheel turning acting as a sudden sharp brake which causes the rider to be thrown forward with no notice; as putting a gravel path bordering the park makes this a huge issue and has caused hundreds of injuries over the years; as similar situation arose in Cork Street until the gravel areas were paved following complaints from local park users.

 

5d

Motion in the name of Councillor Deirdre Heney

 

”That the Manager give an update on the welcome "on lead off lead" proposal for St. Anne's Park in terms of the next steps for the plan and give a time line for same as well as detail on how the consultation with park users will take place.”

 

5e

Motion in the name of Councillor Naoise O'Muiri

 

That this Area Committee:

  • Expresses its concern that the current segregation solution for cyclists/pedestrians on the Causeway Road simply is not fit for purpose as it creates potential dangers for all categories of Causeway users
  • Reiterates its support for the implementation of planned improvement measures for the Causeway Road in advance of further work on the Dublin Bay Discovery Centre project.

 

5f

Motion in the name of Councillor Donna Cooney

“That a flood emergency plan is developed for areas in the NCA that are most at risk from flooding from pluvial/flash flooding, river and marine flooding.  That volunteers are trained from outside the area’s most at risk to help with evacuations and assistance to those effected, as we are facing into the effects of climate change with more frequent extreme weather events, wetter weather increasing our communities and need to be prepared so we can protect those that are most vulnerable”.

 

5g

Motion in the name of Councillor Donna Cooney

 

“That NCA conduct a community participant risk assessment survey for the effects of climate change and possible biodiversity loss at a local community level, also inviting ideas for solutions at a local level, that this can then feed into the development plan and other plans as part of commitment to act local and think global”.
