Minutes:

The following Emergency Motions to the Area Managers were tabled:

 

Emergency motion in the names of Councillors Declan Meenagh and Joe Costello:

The Central Area Committee notes the importance of the Phoenix Park to people living on the Navan Road and the wider community and notes that the Cabra Gate and pedestrian gates have been closed for road works with very short notice and no consultation.

The Central Area Committee calls on the OPW to broaden access to the Park by perhaps opening pedestrian gates and allows broader pedestrian access around these road works.

ORDER: Agreed. Letter to be sent to the OPW outlining the above and the OPW to be invited to a meeting to discuss issues such as the above and communication in general.

 

Emergency motion in the names of Councillors Christy Burke, Anthony Flynn, Nial Ring, Cieran Perry and Janice Boylan:

That this Area Committee be informed of all proposed disposals of DCC owned properties/sites at the same time as any tendering process commences and/or is advertised relating to the proposed sale.  In addition, one of the reports accompanying the disposal (as required per Report 352/2020) should include a copy of the tender documents and accompanying advertisement details.

ORDER: Agreed. Motion to be sent to the DCC Development Department.

 

Emergency motion in the names of Councillors Christy Burke, Anthony Flynn, Nial Rng and Cieran Perry:

That this Area Committee calls for an urgent update on the plan of action to tackle the scourge of knife crime in the North East Inner City. A communications plan and an awareness campaign were to be rolled out in the aftermath of the tragic deaths of two innocent victims in the NEIC area and an increase in the carrying of knives.   

ORDER: Agreed. Update provided by the Area Manager. Follow-up meeting on Knife Crime to be arranged.

 

Emergency motion in the names of Councillors Anthony Flynn and Janice Boylan:

That this committee calls on management to write to Bus Éireann, Go Ahead & Transport Infrastructure Ireland regarding illegal parking both on the footpaths and bicycle lanes along the boundary wall.

Reasoning:

This has now become a safety issue for cyclists, pedestrians and those who are visually impaired. The boundary wall has now been turned into a car park, with buses damaging bollards and trees that have been recently planted.

ORDER: Agreed. Letters to be sent to Bus Éireann, Go Ahead Ireland & Transport Infrastructure Ireland.

 

The following motions were tabled:

 

Motion in the name of Councillor Declan Meenagh

That this Central Area Committee asks the Parks Department for a report on the feasibility of adding table tennis tables to all parks in the Central Area and to aim to add one additional table this year.
