Throughout the last three years I have been closely monitoring the potential redevelopment of the former Ready-mix Site in North Strand along East Wall Road.
I requested a further update from officials in the Housing Department of Dublin City Council in recent days. Brendan Kenny, Deputy Chief Executive and Head of the Housing Department has confirmed to me that a design team has been commissioned to progress at the National PPP Social Housing Schemes including the proposed project at the Ready-mix site in North Strand. From information shared with me, I understand that the design team expects to have the initial preliminary drawings available in February and the project manager Mr. James Nolan will then arrange for a presentation to Local Councillors. As soon as I have further details and images of the design proposals, I will share those with residents and the wider community in the North Strand.
In addition to this, the Deputy Chief Executive has also confirmed that Dublin City Council is keen to move the current North Strand Fire Station to an alternative (build new station) and a site on Alfie Byrne Road (near Comhaltás), but I am advised plans are at a very early stage.
I will continue to make sure that you have as more information as possible as quickly I can share it with you.
If you have any questions or queries arising from the details provided, please email me at RayMcAdam@gmail.com.
