Implementation

Project

Playground in Waterstown Park, Palmerstown

The Council initiated a separate public consultation process and issued a Questionnaire on the 13th June 2017. Questionnaires were sent to all the elected members and to the PPN for distribution. They were also sent to local primary schools and became available for download from Council website. A notice was also posted through the Councils Facebook page and questionnaires were delivered to Palmerstown Youth and Community Centre. At the request of local residents we extended this consultation by a month. The questionnaires have all been returned. It is intended to commence a tender process before end of 2017. It usually takes about 8 weeks to order and deliver equipment so construction is programmed for early 2018. This timeframe is based on similar projects elsewhere but is highly dependent on the outcome of the consultation

Access to Church and Graveyard at Mill Lane, Palmerstown

The Council is in the process of confirming land ownership at the site with regard to gaining the proper and formal permission to carry out these works as the area for the pathway and revised entrance are not Council lands.

Free Library Book Banks in Public Places – Lucan Electoral Area

South Dublin Libraries have purchased the required books to be used for the 300k Have Your Say initiative. The Council is finalising arrangements for suitable locations to distribute books to. In the meantime, we can say that books have been delivered to LIFE Centre, Esker Hill, Lucan (Lucan Institute of Further Education), and Palmerstown Community Centre. The books for Ballyowen Community Centre have been processed and will be available at this location soon.

Multi-Games Wall in Lucan

A number of options were examined with a location at Griffeen Valley Park representing the best option for such a facility. An information leaflet has been drawn up and circulated. It is intended to commence a tender process before end of 2017. It usually takes about 8 weeks to order and deliver equipment so construction is programmed for early 2018.

Restoration of King John’s Bridge Griffeen Park – Lucan

Public Realm is assessing the level of vegetation and site clearance and how this will be dealt with as currently the site is inaccessible. Therefore, before a programme of works can be formed the site needs to be cleared and works agreed. A condition assessment report has been previously completed by a consultant conservation engineer and on foot of his recommendations a mortar analysis has been taken, this will be analysed in order to assist with the remedial repair works.
