Motions

Additional documents:

5a

Motion in the name of Councillor Alison Gilliland

 

The North Central Area Committee recognises the growing bus routes and frequencies running along the Malahide Road. The North Central Area Committee also recognises that residential parts along the Malahide Road will be more exposed to noise pollution as a result, in particular the houses on St. Brendan's Avenue nearest the Tonlegee Road junction that have no tree frontage

 

Therefore, the North Central Area Committee requests that an urban forest hedge, similar to that installed along the Drumcondra Road between Binn Bridge and Drumcondra Bridge, be put both i) inside the barrier rail opposite the houses at St. Brendan's Avenue nearest the Tonlegee Road junction that have no tree frontage (see attached photo) and ii) along the median from the pedestrian light at St. Brendan's Church to the junction with Tonlegee Road- this robust holly hedge about a metre high could provide an effective noise buffer for these houses who have indicated the need for same.

Motion in the name of Councillor Damian O'Farrell

 

That this area committee supports the provision of Changing Places toilet / changing facilities proposed for St Anne’s Park, Fairview Park and Bull Island and seeks separate reports on each proposed facility please including timeframe etc.

Motion in the name of Councillor Alison Gilliland

 

The North Central Area Committee recognises the great amount of work done by the local area office with regard to providing arts, sports, culture, libraries and other activities across the local area. The North Central Area Committee also recognises that the 3 area wards are very active in promoting these activities and other DCC related activities across their various social media channels. However, there does not seem to a central online webpage/hub that would serve as a go-to for anyone looking for what is on in the local area - I am particularly thinking of parents during school holidays when they need to find free, easily accessible activities for their children. In this regard, this Committee supports a North Central Area pilot of a 'North Central School Christmas Holiday Activities webpage/portal for children and young people' that would service to collate the details of all the various arts, sports, culture, libraries activities on offer from DCC on to one local page/portal for ease of planning and promotion.

Motion in the name of Councillor Naoise O'Muiri and Councillor Damian O'Farrell

 

 

That Dublin City Council commissions an external study to determine demand for playing pitches and sports facilities in St Anne’s Park; that the Terms of Reference of this study would be agreed by the North Central Area Committee and that the process would involve engagement with all clubs, schools and organisations that currently use available playing pitches and sports facilities.
