Motion 1 from Councillor Mannix Flynn

That this committee of DCC call  on DCC to immediately initiate the de-tenanting process with a view to rejuvenation at Glovers Court flat complex.

All of these flats are in a deplorable state and in direct breach of human rights. The water coming out of the taps is absolutely filthy.  The roofs are leaking, there is damp and mould throughout the whole complex.  Many people have ill health due to conditions.  Many of the children are constantly falling sick as a result of spores and mould.  The complete fabric here is dilapidated to such an extent as to warrant a dangerous structure.

It is agreed that the council make contact with ESB to commence work on the restoration of the house between ESB offices and Larry Murphy’s pub.  It was agreed that this pilot project would work in co-operation with the Planning Department to find practical solutions to interpretation of our conservation laws.   The occupancy level remains low in our Georgian area of the city and this project is urgently needed to address the declining population in this area   


Back in 2013/14 there was a considerable exodus from Georgian Dublin and the council was concerned about making these houses habitable and accessible for 21st century living which is a challenge to our conservation laws.  At that time ESB agreed to co-operate with DCC to return these houses from offices to dwellings and that the process would act as a prototype and an opportunity to apply best practise to the interpretation of  ...  view the full agenda text for item 7.
