18th May 2022



M170   Councillors Daithí Doolan and Máire Devine

The South Central Area Committee welcomes initiatives that deliver social and affordable housing.

The Land Development Agency propose to build up to 8,000 affordable homes in Inchicore's old railway works.

The South Central Area Committee urges the LDA to fully engage with the local community and elected representatives and requests that the LDA immediately provide a paper briefing on this proposal and invites them to meet with City Councillors as soon as possible to discuss the details.


M171   Councillors Sophie Nicoullaud and Daithí Doolan

This committee is requesting that the Glebe House built in 1791 will be restored immediately. This building is a protected structure in the Crumlin Architectural Conservation Area. That the owner Seabren Developments Ltd keeps the site in good condition and restore the house immediately. That this request is sent to the planning department and for them to ensure the restoration takes places shorty.


M172   Councillor Máire Devine

This Committee calls for the immediate publication of the recently compiled government sanctioned report into fire defects at residential apartment buildings so stressed owners can, without delay, be informed of recommendations for remuneration and/or grant assistance for these essential works.


M173   Councillor Vincent Jackson

Can Dublin City Council Parks Department please give a report on the quality of work currently being done by contractors cutting grass in the South Central Area I have received a number of complaints from residents in the area in relation to the poor quality of work, grass being cut with litter in situ, no proper finish to boundaries overall a very poor finish. Much of this work could I believe, with imagination, could be done properly.


M174   Councillor Vincent Jackson

That the current SHD before DCC for the former De La Salle Lands Ballyfermot Road Dublin 10 which will in the space of a couple of years have the capacity to increase the population of Ballyfermot by two to three thousand people be subject to full scrutiny by An Bord Pleanála. The density, heights and lack of provision of proper play areas, community facilities if handled badly could set the area back many years. We need development which is inclusive of the existing area. It is ironic much of the new development which happened over the past few years whilst built on land that was always Ballyfermot just mysteriously became a different postal district.

Director of Services South City
