Motion in the name of Councillor Cieran Perry

That the Central Area Committee calls for a co-ordinated response from Dublin City Council to the various issues reported in Ventry in Cabra.

Motion in the name of Councillor Cieran Perry

That the Central Area Committee, as part of the effort to find suitable locations around the area for permanent greening rather than just planters and baskets, calls on the Manager to investigate the possibility of using the New Cabra Road area as a trial. The Cabra Road Residents Association have produced a discussion document on proposed tree planting which may be useful. I have sent a copy of this document to the Manager
