Motions

6a

Motion in the name of Councillor Jane Horgan Jones

That this area committee resolves to support the aims of the newly formed Casino Park Residents Committee and asks DCC management to respond to the following issues brought to our attention relating to their local area and set out below.

 

1/ To seek a plot of land from the OPW and DCC to facilitate a play area for the children and residents of our estate

We previously had a small playground on a small part of the park land area that belonged to DCC. This area has recently being handed over to the OPW in 2018. Back in 2018, the small playground we had was removed from this area without and discussions and consultations with the residents which we were extremely upset over and we want this play area restored. This playground was actually donated to the residents by the local youth project a number of years back and did not belong to DCC or the OPW but we do recognise the playground was on their land. In 2018, when the playground was removed in 2018 we contacted DCC as there were questions around who owned the land. DCC clarified they owned it previously but it was being handed over to the OPW. DCC confirmed to the residents that there were plans to upgrade the land being drafted by the OPW and it was hoped that they would look at enhancing this parkland area (that was previously our playground) also. We were informed that when the handover was finalised that the OPW and DCC had agreed to meet with the community to see if they can compliment the planned upgrade works on their side of the boundary wall that was previously our play area.

Its important to note that this piece of land which was previously our play area is on the outside of the trees that surround the Casino Marino monument and therefore it is not maintained or used by the OPW what so ever. It is now a waste ground that the OPW don't use which is a further insult to our community given that we so desperately want and need a play area for our children and residents.

 

 

2/ Fix and Restore the original bench that was built as part of our estate when it opened

In the middle of our estate at the top of the hill we had a bench for years that all the residents used. This has been broken for a number of years and would like to please get this bench fixed and restored. The base of the bench is concrete and still intact and in perfect working order. We just need the wooden lathes replaced on the seat and back area. This would only be a very small job but it would mean a great deal to our community. The bench has always been the central heart of our estate for many years. 

 

2/ We would like to request some flower planters for our area for 2 reasons:

6b

Motion in the name of Councillor Racheal Batten

That this area committee recommend that the Council does not take any lands or roads into their control where they have made a recommendation to an bord pleanala to refuse or amend an application and such recommendation are disregarded.

 

6c

Motion in the name of Councillor Racheal Batten

That this area committee write to the Minister for Local Government and ask that he commences legislation to revoke the SHD as a matter of emergency and there is no regard to the executive of the council’s concerns which bring into question constitutional separation of power of a body interfacing in the democratic rights of the local government.

 

6d

Motion in the name of Councillor Racheal Batten

That the Area Manager in light of the recent an bord pleanala’s decision in Santry and the progress of the Oscar Traynor lands that a local Area Plan for the santry area as a priority.

 

6e

Motion in the name of Councillor Alison Gilliland

The North Central Area Committee recognises the significant housing development that will be realised on the Lawrence Lands on the Oscar Traynor Rd.  The North Central Area Committee also recognises the significant entrance/egress constraints on this site and the imperative to support sustainable traffic and public transport planning and safe sustainable pedestrian and cycling permeability so as to appropriately accommodate future residents on the site and for residents in the surrounding local areas. To realise such sustainable infrastructure, the North Central Area Committee, demands that a comprehensive traffic, transport, cycling and pedestrian mobility plan be designed and implemented ahead of any residents occupying the future development. That such a plan include a survey of vehicles accessing Clonshough Industrial Estate so as to establish the viability of opening access to the estate from the R139 and a new right turn filter lane into the estate from the east side, a viability study of installing a pedestrian/cycle bridge across the main Swords Rd from the Lawrence Lands to Oakpark, identifying deficits in local bus routes and ascertaining the viability of widening the Oscar Traynor Rd or using parallel green space to accommodate a cycle lane.

 

6f

Motion in the name of Councillor Alison Gilliland

The North Central Area Committee recognises the approval of the planning application 307011-20 for the construction of 324 no.apartments an aparthotel and several commercial units in 4 blocks ranging from 7 - 12 storeys contrary to the recommendation of the  North Central Area Committee. The North Central Area Committee seeks legal expertise to support a judicial review of the process leading to this decision.
