15th November, 2023


M280   Councillor Michael Pidgeon

That this Area Committee supports including St. Alban's Road, Greenville Terrace and Washington Street into the red tariff zone for paid parking. All the streets are currently pay and display in the green tariff zone, and now face high parking demands during events at the National Stadium.


M281   Councillor Vincent Jackson 

That Dublin City Council please look at having a public monument erected in the Inchicore / Kilmainham area of Dublin in memory of those from the Area who gave their lives for the cause of freedom in 1936 in the international brigade and who fought against the fascist forces of General Franco in Spain. A large number from the Inchicore / Bulfin area made the ultimate sacrifice here.


M282   Councillor Vincent Jackson 

That Dublin City Council please ensure transparent community consultation is provided for as part of the LDA proposals for Affordable, cost rental and social housing in the Cherry Orchard Area for far too long the area has got social housing and have always had to wait for community facilities we must learn from the past and ensure that once and for all we provide the facilities and services needed in this large area.

M283   Councillors Vincent Jackson and Daithí Doolan 

That this Committee thanks all the groups in the South Central Area for the fantastic work in providing so many family friendly activities over the Halloween Season, Gardaí, Community Development Staff, Sports Development Officers, Youth Services, Community Groups Parish Groups all provided a great experience for all in a safe, fun way for all.


M284   Councillor Máire Devine 

That this Area Committee welcomes the proposal from Inland Waterways Ireland to establish a slipway at the desired location of the Grand canal adjacent to Dolphin House that will allow access for all to enjoy and add to the proposed amenities that are planned to increase the use of this blue way in our area.


M285   Councillor Máire Devine 

That this Area Committee request that the relevant council departments seek to compel the National Boxing Stadium to produce an agreed traffic management plan to provide parking for their clients which will prioritise consideration for their neighbours and mitigate the ongoing significant influx of visitor traffic in  local residential streets.


M286   Councillor Máire Devine 

This Committee expresses concern at the lack of testing for PFAS - forever man-made chemicals-in our drinking water. These complex chemical pollutants are of huge concern to human and environmental health and the lack of urgency for testing is worrying. We request that a report be compiled and presented to elected members to inform how best we can mitigate the hazards that these chemicals represent.


M287   Councillor Sophie Nicoullaud

For the Director of Services to plan for a full local consultation and community engagement process with all Bluebell residents on the development of DCC land by the LDA.  That a public meeting in Bluebell inviting all Bluebell residents is set up.  ...  view the full agenda text for item 8.
