Monday, March 14, 2016


QUESTION: Councillor F. Timmons

To ask the Chief Executive for a report on the update for the village Initiatives?


The following is the current Status of the Village Initiative Programme:-

Works are now completed at Palmerstown and Manor Road.

Work is substantially complete in Rathcoole.

The first phase of works in Newcastle- the new footpath linking Aylmer Road to Peamount UTD. is on site. Works on the gateway roundabout at the village entrance including pavements, kerbing and planting will issue to tender soon. The developed design for a public plaza at the Community Centre was not acceptable to community groups and will be revisited later in 2016.

Tender documents are being prepared for the plaza adjoining the historic cemetery in Rathfarnham and are scheduled for issue in March. The design for a new plaza at Wolfe Tone Terrace is in consultation with traders. Works to the forecourt at the Castle requires permission from OPW which will be the centre of discussions with them in the New Year.

Pavement repair works in Lucan and Tallaght have gone to tender and will be on site by the end of the month.

Preparation of tender documents for works in Tallaght village are in progress and tender will issue in March.

Preparation of tender documents for the new public-stairway adjoining Lucan Bridge will commence in the second quarter of 2016. Revised proposals for the Village Green will be brought to the Area Committee when complete.

Good progress has been made with stakeholders in Templeogue village in an ongoing series of meetings and subject to agreements, a Part 8 process will commence in March 2016.

In Saggart the proposed closing/refurbishment of Mill Lane has not been approved by Area Committee. As this constituted the spine of the overall proposal a redesign and re-evaluation is now required and revised proposals will be brought back later in 2016.

A recent joint meeting of the Arts/Culture and Economic Development SPCs agreed a strategy for the roll-out of signage across the 9 villages in the first instance. This is included under the SPC report section of the December Council meeting
