Motion in the name of Councillor Catherine Stocker

 

Marino will be celebrating its centenary in the coming years (built between 1922 and 1926) as the first major housing development by the new Irish state. This area committee agrees to engage with the Dublin City Arts Office and heritage sections to organise an arts and heritage event in Marino in Summer 2024 to mark this historic occasion. Marino is a shining example of success in the delivery of state funded housing and has resulted in a remarkable community which should be celebrated. There are many still in the community in Marino and neighbouring areas who have valuable oral history relating to their families moving to Marino and the difference it made in their lives. We could use this event to gather such oral history before it is lost to us.

 

The arts event run in Rockfield Park was an enormous success and a tribute to all involved. We should draw on this model for an arts and heritage event on the Greens in Marino to mark the centenary.

Motion in the name of Cllr. Micheal MacDonncha

 

That this Area Committee notes with concern the very serious problem of traffic congestion on Newbrook Road, Donaghmede, at school peak times which is a huge inconvenience and a real hazard to residents. This road is effectively a cul de sac with a school entrance/exit at the end of it, serving a campus with several schools and streams of cars entering and leaving the school to drop and collect pupils twice per day. This renders their road inaccessible for residents, many of them elderly, whose vehicles are blocked in for several hours each day, creating a hazard also due to inaccessibility for emergency vehicles. The Area Committee calls for action to address this issue, including restricting access to the road, encouraging parents to park at the nearby shopping centre, encouraging more walking and cycling to school, and mandates the Area Office to liaise with all stakeholders to find a solution.

Motion in the name of Councillor Alison Gilliland

 

That this Area Committee recognises the significant residential development of almost 1,700 new units in Santry Village over the last 5 years, in particular

 

§  147 additional units at Milners Square

§  120 units in Swiss Cottage 

§  255 units in Santry Place

§  324 units in Omni Living

§  350 units in Chadwicks (decision due Sept 2022)

§  468 proposed units at Santry Hall (pre-planning application stage as yet)

 

Significant additional units have also been built in the adjoining Northwood area under the administration of Fingal Co. Co.

 

The North Central Area Committee notes with concern the absence of any new school or primary care facilities to support this significant additional development. Such an absence of basic social infrastructure and public services will result in new families travelling out of Santry Village to access such services and put not only additional strain on a limited public transport routes but also increase private car journeys resulting in increased emissions and poorer quality air. This will have a direct negative impact on the realisation of the DCC Development Plan aspiration of a 15 minute city and the realisation of the Dublin Climate Action Plan and a carbon neutral city by 2050.

 

The North Central Area Committee therefore demands that immediate action be taken to identify potential sites within the immediate environs of Santry Village for new school and primary care facilities to serve this exponential population growth and to liaise with the Departments of Education and Health to ensure the realisation of these essential services.

5e

Motion in the name of Councillor Alison Gilliland

 

That this Area Committee recognises there is work ongoing in the background to put a plan in place to remove the materials illegally dumped on the green space opposite Belcamp Gardens, bring the perpetrators to justice and put a plan in place to maximise the potential of the space for more long term social/community good. However, the North Central Area Committee also very much recognises the immense frustration and feelings of being abandoned among local residents due to the length of time it is taking to publicly commit to a concrete plan for the removal of the dumped materials and the development of the site. The North Central Area Committee therefore requests a full public detailed action plan to have the materials removed and the site developed and that this action plan be commenced before the end of the calendar year.

Given the high level of usage and footfall in Ellenfield Park which has now been enhanced by the new pedestrian crossings on the Shantalla/Swords Road. (thank you!)
