The following emergency motion was tabled:

 

Motion in the name of Councillor Joe Costello and Councillor Declan Meenagh:

 

That the Central Area Committee calls on the Minister for Housing to immediately introduce legislation banning the sale of residential homes to institutional investors. 

 

ORDER: Agreed. Letter to be sent to the Minister for Housing.

 

The following motions were tabled:

 

Motion in the name of Councillor Declan Meenagh:

That this Central Area Committee request the Parks Department to investigate the possibility of providing permanent chess boards on tables in parks in the Central Area.

ORDER: Agreed. Report to Councillor.          

 

Motion in the name of Councillor Eimer McCormack:

That this Central Area Committee calls on Dublin City Council and Waterways Ireland to work together to tackle the issue of littering and public urination along the banks of the Royal Canal between Cross Guns Bridge and Binn’s Bridge.

The provision of big bellied bins along the entire stretch of canal, the provision of public toilets and the provision of bottle banks at either end of the bank need urgent installation. Can the City Manager provide an update to this Area Committee on steps being taken to address this issue.

ORDER: Agreed. Report to Councillor

 

Motion in the name of Councillor Declan Meenagh:

Noting that the only option for people to socialize is to meet outdoors, there will be a massive increase in people meeting outdoors in streets, parks and other open areas and this will cause an increased demand for bins and public toilets, that this Central Area Committee call on Dublin City Council to provide a greater provision of bins and an increased cleaning schedule in areas likely to be impacted, more provision of public toilets, including in the vicinity of Crossguns Bridge, for an understanding approach where we acknowledge some people will drink outdoors, but tackling more serious violations and annoyances to local residents.

ORDER: Agreed. Report to Councillor.

 

Motion in the name of Councillor Janet Horner and Councillor Darcy Lonergan:

That this Area Committee calls for a laneway of traffic along North Kings Street to be reallocated to provide space for improved footpaths and outdoor dining space, in line with the requests from businesses and to support existing speed limits on this section of roadway.

ORDER: Motion withdrawn.

 

Motion in the name of Councillor Joe Costello:

That this Area Committee agree that the North Port Dwellers Association and North Wall Community Association be invited to give a presentation on the experiences of local communities at the centre of the enormous Docklands development.

ORDER: Agreed. Group to be invited to present to the Committee.

 

Motion in the name of Councillor Janet Horner and Councillor Darcy Lonergan:

That this Area Committee calls for a fully public toilet along the Royal Canal as soon as possible, recognising that the regular and generally sociable gathering here will become increasingly anti-social if people are not provided with hygiene facilities.

ORDER: Agreed. Report to Councillor.

 

Motion in the name of Councillor Cat O’Driscoll:
