    Motion No. 1 as amended in the name of Councillor John Lyons

     

    Noting the recent refusal by central government to provide funding from the Urban Regeneration and Development Fund for the white water rafting facility proposal at George’s Dock, this council believes that work on progressing the project should cease immediately and a new process initiated that will consider a variety of alternative proposals for this key city centre site.

     

    It was proposed by Councillor Lyons and seconded by Larry O’Toole to amend the motions as follows to include the following “To assist this endeavour, consideration should be given to establishing a George's Dock working-group which could engage in public consultation with a view to reaching an agreed alternative use that is accessible, family-orientated and ultimately a welcome addition to the city for Dubliners and visitors alike to enjoy.”

     

    It was proposed by the Manager that the matter be referred to the Docklands Oversight and Consultative Group for discussion and follow up. The
    motion as amended was put and carried.
