#GreeningStoneybatter – April 2022 Update

I wanted to share with you a further update on the delivery of projects associated with Dublin City Council’s Greening Stoneybatter Plan.

So far, the below projects have been delivered:

  • Murals on 1 Ben Edair Roard, 21 Malachi Road, Aughrim Street Scouts Hall and Viking Place.
  • Planting projects at Drumalee Green and Stoneybatter Green .
  • Constructed pits and planting on Lucky Lane.
  • Tree & Herbaceous planting on Arbour Hill.
  • New planting at Halliday Square park.
  • Alton Lane planting pits .
  • Drumalee Tree planting – Cedrus deo. ‘Robusta Glauca’.
  • Montpelier Drive entrance planting.
  • Tree planting on Harold Road, Ostman Place  & Viking Place – complete Week 2, April 2022.
  • Montpelier Gardens play pocket park – open end of April 2022.

This year, the following planned projects are being advanced currently through various stages of procurement, including:

  • Q2, 2022 – Stoneybatter Green enhanced understorey planting
  • Arbour Hill N-S – Rain garden – Tender stage
  • Green School zone on Cowper Street – Pretender stage

The Parks Department is currently preparing ideas for new tree planting along:

  • Niall Street
  • Murtagh Road
  • Sigurd Road
  • North Fitzwilliam Place
  • Montpelier Hill
  • Swords Street

Separately, following an on-street meeting earlier this month, Dublin City Council is preparing a proposal for a pocket park on Moira Road.

I understand that the overall feedback has been positive but there is a few concerns regarding the changes in traffic and potential antisocial behaviour, so it was requested that the Parks Department and the Engineering team test the closure prior to implementing a permanent scheme.

As a result, it is now planned to trial this closure for 6 months starting at the end of April by placing 3 planters and the necessary road signage on the Ben Edair and Niall Street ends of  Moira Road to close one section only.
