Motion in the name of Lord Mayor Alison Gilliland


That this North Central Area Committee recognises the significant development plans in the area of the Northern Fringe/Belmayne/Clongriffin areas as well as significant developments in the bordering Fingal Co. Co. Belcamp/St Donagh’s/The Coast/Baldoyle and the need for appropriate co-ordination of the social infrastructure, particularly transport links, and permeability between the two local authorities.  The North Central Area Committee requests that the previous joint local authority representatives’ forum be resurrected and meetings of the forum scheduled in the early New Year to ensure local public representatives and key stakeholder engagement in development going forward.



Motion in the name of Councillor Deirdre Heney

Motion in the name of Councillor Deirdre Heney


That should this Area Committee agree, that it calls on the members & management to progress with the assistance of the Smart Dublin Office, the introduction of the "Civic Dollars Scheme" whereby for every 30 minutes a constituent spends in one of five parks in our area (up to a limit of 5 dollars a day) will be able to earn civic dollars to be redeemed in the North Central Area, parks to include St. Anne's Park, Fairview Park, Rockfield Park, Maypark, and Fr. Collins Park.



Motion in the name of Councillor Naoise O'Muiri


That should this Area Committee agree, that it requests Dublin City Council to run a waste separation pilot scheme (dry recyclables, compostable waste, general waste) for the public litter bins in the busy area of St Anne’s Park i.e. Red Stables/Market/Avenue area.


Motion in the name of Councillor Donna Cooney


That this Area Committee agrees that safe routes to school though Marino be created, with physical measures to address the speeding in a 30km safe zone are addressed so children can use active travel safely unaccompanied from age 7 or 8, as should be the norm, there have been a few near accidents and accidents and parents are understandably nervous.




Motion in the name of Councillor Donna Cooney


That should this Area Committee agree, that it writes to Irish Rail to put in adequate safe bicycle parking at Clontarf dart station including cargo bicycles.




Motion in the name of Councillor Donna Cooney


That should this Area Committee agree,  that we have an update on place-making for Vernon Avenue Village, concept drawings have been prepared by residents for a public plaza.




Motion in the name of Councillor Daryl Barron


That I call on this North Central Area Committee to agree to ensure that future planned developments within the area of Clongriffin, Belmayne and Balgriffin are met with stronger infrastructure links of roads and decent traffic management plans to deal with the explosion of population in these respective areas. There is a significant amount of large scale developments being built without social amenities locally, with both the local schools and crèche having very long waiting lists. I call for this area committee to demand that Dublin City Council look at future capital infrastructure projects to alleviate the situation and strengthen our infrastructure locally in Clongriffin and Belmayne and Balgriffin.
