That this committee requests that the kerbs in Manor Estate, particularly around Mountdown Drive and Avenue be assessed and where necessary, replaced. The kerbs in many parts of this estate are in a bad state repair. The kerbs are in pieces and residents are concerned that these will be used to help break into vehicles and/or used in other forms of ASB.

That the Manager organises a safety review of the 'Shared Surface' footpath leading down from the Orlagh Roundabout to the Knocklyon Road junction at Supervalu Knocklyon.

Questions

Qu (2)

Submitted by:
Councillor Carly Bailey
Responsibility:
Maire Ni Dhomhnaill

To ask the Chief Executive for an update on St. Joseph's Rd, Greenhills, Dublin 12 in relation to tree maintenance in that area. I was advised recently that discussion is required with residents before tree pruning works can be carried out due to a previously made commitment to residents in relation to the replanting of trees where others had been cut down. Can you also please advise as to why replanting discussion is holding up tree pruning? Can you please provide information as to what this commitment involves, when it was made, how discussion will be facilitated given the current situation and when that will take place and what the Council would like to do for this street in terms of replanting? Can I also ask in relation to a tree outside of 20 St Josephs Rd. Residents report that it had been agreed that this tree needed to be removed in 2016 but it is still in place. I am not in favour of removing trees without good reason but it would seem that SDCC were in favour of it so must have had justification.
