MOTION NO. 18

MOTION: Councillor F. Timmons

“That this committee agrees that the space on Orchard Road allocated for use by Clondalkin Senior Citizens be fitted out as a day centre for a day centre for Clondalkin Senior Citizens to meet a much needed local demand.”

REPORT:

The development at Orchard Road, Clondalkin (formerly known as the Cowan Site) is a mixed use development comprising apartments, ground floor retail units and a space reserved for community type use. The provision of the latter space was included as a condition of the original disposal of this IAP site.

The Council have held a number of explanatory meetings with a range of organisations interested in using the facility. However the primary difficulty which all organisations must face in order to develop the facility for any use is that it must be fitted out. The space has only been provided to shell and core standard and to date no group has been in a position to fund the fitting out of the space to meet their needs. It is accepted that the cost of the fit out will be considerable and beyond the ability of most local groups to fund. The option of a fit out to produce a shared space suitable for use by a number of organisations has also been explored but to date no solution has been developed which is sustainable.

The Council has made no financial provision to carry out the required fit out work and having regard to the extensive demands being made on the limited resources available to the Council and the considerable commitments already made by the Council, it is highly unlikely that the Council will be in a position to fund these works in the foreseeable future. If any group or organisation is in a financial position to carry out the required works, then contact can be made directly with the Community Services Department to explore the plans.
