Motion 162 referred from Special Council Meeting 8-10 November 2021 Draft Dublin City Development plan 2022-2028 - Submitted by Green Party Comhaontas Glas

Refers to: Chapter 8 - Sustainable Movement and Transport

Motion 162

 

Chapter:8, Section: Page: 225 after SMT32 to include a new policy: The Council will examine mechanisms to reduce the presence of oversized and emissions intensive vehicles, particularly in the city centre 

Planning Reason

To support sustainable transport and reduce the number of private cars in the city.

Chief Executive's Response

 

The delivery of goods and services in the city is an essential service carried out by many large scale trucks and vehicles and supports many jobs and businesses in the city.  However, the concern regarding the reducing in emissions is noted and Dublin City Council is committed to supporting and promoting the development of 'last mile' deliveries (Policy SMT14) which seek to reduce the presence of vehicles in the city. Policy SMTO28 also seeks to tackle the adverse environmental and road safety of traffic in the city through measures such as the ongoing monitoring of traffic noise and emissions and the evaluation of the air quality and traffic noise impacts of transport policy and traffic management measures being implemented by DCC.

The issue of mechanisms to change access for vehicles is an issue of City by-laws and is not a Development Plan matter; and this topic would be best addressed through examination of the wider issue through the Traffic and Transport SPC.

Chief Executive Recommendation

It is the recommendation of the CE that the motion is not agreed as it is outside of the scope of the Development Plan; and the Draft Plan contains policies seeking to reduce traffic noise and emissions. 

 

Council Meeting Decision

 

The motion was WITHDRAWN. To be referred to Traffic and Transportation SPC.

 

8.

Motion 163 referred from Special Council Meeting 8-10 November 2021 Draft Dublin City Development Plan 2022-2028 to Traffic & Transport SPC. Submitted by Cll. Cieran Perry

Refers to: Chapter 8 - Sustainable Movement and Transport

 

Motion 163

That the Development Plan should provide a commitment that Dublin City Council will accept responsibility for traffic cameras.

 

Planning Reason

 

The roll out of traffic cameras has paused due to a reluctance of either An Garda Síochána or Dublin City Council to take responsibility for operation and monitoring. The pause has delayed the opportunity to use traffic cameras for identifying breaches of traffic legislation such as red light running etc.

 

Chief Executive's Response

 

This is an operational matter and outside of the scope of the Development Plan.

Chief Executive Recommendation

It is the recommendation of the CE that the motion is not agreed as it is outside the scope of the Development Plan.

 

Council Meeting Decision

The motion was WITHDRAWN. To be referred to Traffic and Transportation SPC.
