MONTPELIER DRIVE MATTERS – February 2019

TACKLING ILLEGAL DUMPING IN MONTPELIER DRIVE
Residents have been in touch with me to express their anger at the ongoing problem with illegal dumping in the two raised beds at the entrance to Montpelier Drive, and two inside, as well as a small, grass roundabout. Some neighbours spoke to me about the situation when I was in the estate last month and following contact on social media and by email in recent days, I have been working with City Council officials to secure commitments that these areas be cleaned, dumped materials removed and that a plan be implemented to better utilise these public spaces.

Therefore, I can report to you that:
1. The raised areas at the entrance to Montpelier Drive adjoining private property are in the ownership of Dublin City Council and officials have confirmed that materials dumped in them will be removed ASAP.
2. I have worked with officials, despite the Sinn Fein-controlled Council cutting the Budget for new litter bins, enforcement of waste regulations and funding for Litter Wardens, to set aside some money towards Environmental Improvement Works on publicly owned lands like the four areas within Montpelier Drive. I expect that funding of at least €30,000 will be agreed for such a scheme. As your LOCAL Councillor, I will work to secure money that can be used to have these areas properly planted with appropriate shrubs/flowers, and for these to be maintained, to discourage the illegal dumping.

Illegal dumping is the worst form of anti-social behaviour and I believe the best way of tackling this scourge is to enhance Council owned lands like those in Montpelier Drive but also to install CCTV in areas where littering and dumping is occurring and to use the images captured to publicly name and shame those people responsible. More CCTV is required and I am working with City Council to put in place those cameras.

ARBOUR HILL TRAFFIC IMPROVEMENT SCHEME
Dublin City Council will begin work in April on the Arbour Hill Traffic Improvement Scheme. Local residents have enquired of me as to what is involved in this project. Therefore, I have put together a simple Questions & Answers guide detailing all aspects of this project. The key objective is to reduce traffic speeds on Arbour Hill and thereby improve pedestrian, cyclist and road safety for all.

ARBOUR HILL TRAFFIC IMPROVEMENT SCHEME
ANSWERING YOUR QUESTIONS….

1. Will the footpath extend along Temple Street West?
Yes. The footpath will extend from the Museum entrance on Arbour Hill to Temple Street West and tie-in with the existing footpath.

2. Will there be some form of pedestrian crossing linking the north and south sides of Arbour Hill?
Yes. An uncontrolled pedestrian crossing will be installed near the Arbour Hill / Cavalry Row junction to facilitate north to south pedestrian movements.

In addition, a buildout will be installed on north side of Arbour Hill at the existing pedestrian crossing point near the Museum Entrance. This will slow traffic and reduce the distance pedestrians need to cross the road.

3. How wide will the footpath be?
The footpath will be a minimum of 1.8 meters wide. According to the Design Manual for Urban Roads and Streets (DMURS), this is the minimum recommended footpath width for two wheelchairs to pass by each other.

4. Will there be cycle lanes?
Yes. There will be advisory cycle lanes on both sides of the road.

5. What types of trees will be planted?
Dublin City Council’s Parks Department will select the most suitable tree species depending on their suitability to setting, biodiversity value and visual appearance.

6. Will the existing cobblestones be retained?
The existing cobblestones have been incorporated into the detailed design and are likely to be retained in their current position.

7. Other traffic issues were raised, how and when will they be addressed?
The other traffic issues that were highlighted but not related to the scheme have been forwarded to the Traffic Advisory Group, which will present recommendations on each to the North Inner City Area Committee across the coming weeks.

CONSTITUTION HILL MATTERS – January 2019

DUBLIN CITY COUNCIL HOUSING COMPLEX RENEWAL PLAN
As you know Dublin City Council published Phase 1 of its Estate Renewal Plan last March. That programme outlined details of initial plans to refurbish, redevelop and enhance some of the 240 housing complexes across the city. These projects will require funding from Government. In the North Inner City, that programme includes plans for Constitution Hill, Dorset Street, Matt Talbot Court, Dunne Street and Gardiner Street. The Council has submitted funding applications for four of the five complexes to Government which are now presently being examined. With specific regards to Constitution Hill, the City Council is already advancing procurement and tendering procedures enabling Stage 2 of the redevelopment process to proceed. At the January meeting of the Housing Committee, I sought clarity from Council officials as to plans to renovate and to improve the quality of housing for those residing in other complexes the city and particularly in the North Inner City – Kevin Barry House, St. Michan’s House, Henrietta House, Chancery House, Marmion Court among others. Officials have confirmed to me that a multi-disciplinary team comprising of architects, planners and housing personnel have completed a technical study of how these complexes can be enhanced and additional homes provided. Separately, a Condition Survey of 17,000 homes will be completed by the end of March. A full report detailing the future refurbishment plans for each complex will be published in April. Myself and Minister Paschal Donohoe have been working closely with officials on this matter for the past number of months and we will work to keep you updated on progress in delivering and ultimately implementing these plans.

SF CITY COUNCIL ALLIANCE CUTS FUNDING TO TACKLE LITTERING & ILLEGAL DUMPING
The Council’s Waste Bye Laws governing the presentation and collection of household and commercial waste were updated this month, details of which are available on http://www.RayMcAdam.com. While I welcome these new regulations, it is somewhat ironic that Sinn Fein, Labour, Green and Fianna Fáil Councillors called for more litter bins, better enforcement of waste regulations and improved clearing of bottle banks and bring centres. Why so? For these parties approved a City Council Budget for 2019 which cut the amount of money to be spent on the operation of our Recycling Facilities, our Litter Warden Service, the provision and improvement of Litter Bins, enforcement of our Waste Regulations as well as reducing the money available to implement the Waste Management Plan. Sinn Fein and their partners in Labour, Fianna Fáil and the Greens continue to speak out of both sides of their mouths on this issue. Tackling illegal dumping and littering requires a multi-facet response but the Sinn Fein Council Alliance in refusing to invest in the enforcement of waste regulations or the provision of new litter bins is not one of them. If re-elected with increased Fine Gael numbers, my party will work to ensure that litter and waste enforcement is properly resourced and that litter bins are located where we need them and that recycling facilities and bottle banks are cleared more efficiently.

O’DEVANEY GARDENS – Construction progress report
Construction work is proceeding well and on schedule for the first 56 new homes being built on O’Devaney Gardens. Carey’s Construction Ltd are also finalising a new road layout on site as part of the redevelopment works. As you know palisade fencing was erected prior to Christmas adjacent to where the former blocks stood opposite homes in Montpelier Gardens in an effort to discourage illegal dumping. With regards the building of the further 640 new homes on site, those contractors involved in the tendering process have until the end of February their tender applications to Dublin City Council before the successful tenderer is selected and the Development Agreement approved. The report from the Community Consultative meeting that took place in the Ashling Hotel has been circulated to the Consultative Forum and we will be discussed that next week. Following that meeting, I would be happy to share that report with you. If you would like a copy, please email me at RayMcAdam@gmail.com.

BRIDEWELL POLICING MATTERS
Prior to Christmas, I chaired the North Inner City Policing Committee meeting in City Hall. At the meeting, I secured a report from the Gardaí detailing actions and initiatives undertaken throughout the last three months of 2018. The Chief Superintendent confirmed that a feasibility study is being finalized for the installation of new CCTV in Smithfield Square. Dedicated Public Order patrols have been put in place on Thursday, Friday and Saturday nights. Operation Pump remains in situ with high visibility patrols to target drug dealing with 635 searches taking place under the Misuse of Drugs legislation. Operation Thor patrols have been continuing. Between July and mid-December, 1203 Proactive Patrols took place. In addition to the 75 Garda allocated to the area since April 4th, another 17 officers started in the Dublin Central Division on December 3rd. A further 11
Sergeants and Inspectors have been deployed across the local policing districts. In recent days, I have been following up with the Gardaí to ensure that extra visible patrols are put in situ to reassure homeowners from the risk of burglaries and to step up Operation Kerb once again due to concerns about increasing prostitution occurring. Please get in touch with me at RayMcAdam@gmail.com if you have any questions or queries arising from the details outlined above.

NORTH INNER CITY PROJECTS SECURE GOVERNMENT FUNDING
15 North Inner City clubs, organisations and projects have secured more than €143,000 in funding through our Fine Gael Government’s Community Enhancement Programme. Across the country, more than 3000 separate projects are benefitting from €12.5 million in funding. In the North Inner City, Minister Ring has confirmed to me that funding has been approved for groups including Ana Liffey Drug Project, Carmichael Centre, MACRO Centre, Smithfield Boxing Club and The Complex. This announcement is further evidence of Fine Gael’s commitment to supporting the communities of the North Inner City so that all our citizens can achieve their full potential across a wide range of areas.

GRANGEGORMAN PROJECT UPDATE
– SITE PROJECTS UPDATE
o Major New Access Opens: Grangegorman Links with Constitution Hill.
The new pedestrian/cyclist link between Grangegorman and Constitution Hill was officially opened in November. This link in its current format is temporary until site development in that area is completed. The initial opening hours for the link are Monday – Friday, from 7am – 4pm and on Saturdays, from 7.30am – 2pm. I have been advised by the Grangegorman Development Agency that it intends to expand these opening hours soon.
o DIT Central and East Quads (PPPs).
Work is progressing on schedule for both quads which will bring 10,000 students to Grangegorman once completed.
– UPCOMING PLANNING APPLICATIONS
o DIT Academic Hub and the Energy Centre
The GDA submitted its planning application to Dublin City Council before Christmas for the DIT Academic Hub, which will form the centralised library for DIT and include the protected structure known as the North House as part of the build. The Energy Centre is expected to be lodged shortly.
– D7 EDUCATE TOGETHER SCHOOL BUILDING – UPDATE
Construction on the new school building is anticipated to commence on site shortly.
– NEXT PHASES OF DEVELOPMENT
Work is starting on the designs for the HSE Residential Care Neighbourhood (formerly Community Nursing Unit) and the DIT West Quad (for the College of Business).

LISBURN STREET HEALTH CENTRE – PLANNING UPDATE (4238/18)
The Planning Department of Dublin City Council has determined that additional information is required of the Health Services Executive (HSE) before final decision is taken on whether to grant planning permission. Extra information has been sought in respect of three separate areas, including:
1. Clarification on what the building is currently used for and its future intended use.
2. The opening hours for the planned future use of the building.
3. Sharing the rationale for the provision of a new access point to the building on Coleraine Street.
The HSE had six months from December 17th last to submit this additional information. I can now confirm that this information has been shared with the Planning Department of Dublin City Council. If you have any questions or queries arising from the details outlined above, contact me at RayMcAdam@gmail.com.

SEAN FOSTER PLACE – Contractor selected
I can confirm that finally, four years after funding was initially allocated by our Fine Gael-led Government, Dublin City Council has secured a new contractor to build 30 new homes on North King Street. The new Sean Foster Place housing complex will be located on the site of the current park. It is expected that the contractor will begin works on site within weeks. Both myself and Minister Paschal Donohoe will work to keep you fully updated of progress on site.

Clonliffe Road & Ballybough Matters

REDEVELOPMENT OF HOLY CROSS LANDS
Late last year, it was disclosed that the Dublin Archdiocese was in discussions with the GAA with regards the potential sale of the Holy Cross lands. Since then, I have been pursuing this matter with Dublin City Council in an effort to understand the type of development, planning permission may be sought for, in order to keep you appraised of the situation. I understand that no formal pre-planning meetings have taken place as yet between the GAA and the Planning Department of Dublin City Council. These lands are currently zoned Z12 which ensure that “existing environmental amenities are protected in the predominantly residential future of these lands”. When Z12 zoned lands are to be redeveloped, a minimum of 20% of the site must be retained as accessible public open space. Any proposals for redevelopment must be informed by the preparation and submission of a masterplan setting out a clear vision for the future for the development of the entire land holding. From my experience of planning matters after almost 10 years as your City Councillor, I suspect a planning application with anywhere up to 500 homes being submitted with some commercial element possibly being included. Let me assure you that as soon as details of a formal planning application are available, I will share that information with you. Please get in touch with me at RayMcAdam@gmail.com if you have any questions or queries about the potential for the redevelopment of the Holy Cross lands.

Ferrymans Crossing / Bellmans Walk Matters

ROYAL CANAL GREENWAY WORKS
Since the start of the year, enabling works have been ongoing in advance of the major construction phase of the new cycle and pedestrian greenway along the Royal Canal. Following this, householders on Ferryman’s Crossing and Bellmans’ Walk have contacted me requesting that consideration be given to the replacement of the existing damaged railings along the Canal with a more permanent structure. Some have suggested that a wall be built, especially as it would give greater protection and provide an enhanced level of security for those residents whose homes and back gardens face onto the Canal. Therefore, as your local Councillor, I have:

• Highlighted these concerns at the North-East Inner City Policing Matters Public Meeting, I organised, in East Wall last Wednesday with Superintendent Gerry Murphy from Store Street.

o This issue will now remain on the agenda of the Gardaí over the coming months.

• Currently organising for Senior Engineers from the Transportation Department of Dublin City Council to meet on site with the Local Area Manager, based on Sean McDermott Street to examine the feasibility of such a permanent structure – like a wall.

o Following this meeting, I will circulate an update and organise any follow-up meeting with local residents that may be required, in my role as Chairman of the North Inner City Policing Committee.

 

REPAIRS TO DAMAGED FOOTPATHS
Concerns about the condition of the footpath on Ferryman’s Crossing were also raised with me. In response, I contacted Ronan Connolly, Senior Engineer in the Roads Maintenance Department requesting that repairs to damaged sections of the path be carried out as quickly as possible. I received confirmation this morning that these works will now be prioritised.

ACCESS TO APPRENTICESHIP PROGRAMME
The Access to Apprenticeship Programme is aimed at young men and women aged 16 to 24 living in Dublin who experience social and economic barriers. The Programme provides an opportunity for young people to;

  • Sample a range of apprenticeships in; Construction, Engineering, Electrical, Motor and Aviation industries.

Manor Street planning application (4734/18) – Observation

I write to offer my views on the planning application submitted to Dublin City Council with regards the redevelopment of 20 Stoneybatter, the lands to the rear of 20-23A Stoneybatter and  1-2a Manor Street, Stoneybatter, Dublin 7 as contained in 4734/18.

 

At the outset, I have to express my concern that this application proposes the construction of yet another purpose built student accommodation complex within the Stoneybatter district of Dublin 7. Less than one kilometre from the redevelopment site, planning permissions have been granted for purpose built student accommodation, including:

• 274 North Circular Road, Dublin 7 – planning permission being built out presently.

• 43, 45, 47, 51 and 53 Montpelier Hill and Rear of Nos. 37, 39, 41 and 55 Montpelier Hill, Dublin 7 – planning permission being built out presently.

• Lands at and to the rear of 84-87, Prussia Street, Stoneybatter, Dublin 7.

• Park Shopping Centre & 42 – 45 Prussia Street, Stoneybatter, Dublin 7.

• 13 – 18 Grangegorman Road & Fitzwilliam Place North, Dublin 7.

• 3–7 / 9–11 Grangegorman Lower & 21-27 N. Brunswick Street, Dublin 7.

• 104A – 115 Dorset Street, Dublin 7 – already built.

 

Between all of these planning permissions, Dublin City Council has approved planning for in excess of 2600 bed-spaces of purpose built student accommodation. While I do not object to purpose-built student accommodation, I do fear that the Planning Department is making decisions that run contrary to the principles of good planning adopted by the City Council in the Dublin City Development Plan 2016 – 2022. In the event of planning permission being granted for this development would be 142 bed spaces coupled with a potential grant of permission on the Nolan’s Seafood Ltd site on Rathdown Road for 289 bed space student accommodation complex, it would mean almost 3120 bed-spaces of student accommodation would have secured planning permission. All of this within one kilometres of the site upon which this planning application has been submitted. I ask the Planning Department of Dublin City Council to review its consideration of when oversaturation of a specific type of development in one particular district or part of the city has been met.

 

With regards this specific planning application, there are particular areas that I believe further information is required of the applicant, before any decision to grant planning permission can be made. Firstly, existing residents have already experienced a lot of difficulty in complexes managing roof terrace areas. Facilities on Lower Grangegorman have not been well managed and the Gardaí have had to be contacted by residents as a result of loud drunken parties occurring in the outdoor roof terrace of similar types of accommodation. I would strongly encourage the Planning Department to examine this issue and ensure that strict conditions are set out in any permission statement ensuring the onus is in the developer to put in place rigid procedures that not result in similar difficulties being experienced with this development should permission be granted and the facility become operational.

 

Secondly, in the documentation accompanying the planning application there is precious little, if any, attention, given to how the demolition and construction phase of the project will be managed. In particular, there is no information with regards to demolition or construction traffic. I highlight this issue because it appears that all trucks associated with the demolition and construction phases of the project will enter and exit the development site from Manor Street. This being the case, where will the construction traffic be managed? Will residents see a build-up of construction traffic along Manor Street, blocking the entrance to Stanhope Street Convent? Manor Street is one of the main arterial routes in and out of the City – is it to be blocked on a daily basis with a constant line of HGVs removing demolition rubble and other material from the site. How does the applicant intend to deal with the delivery of materials for the construction phase to proceed? I ask these questions because from the material submitted by the applicant, no information exists to provide me with clarity on these points! Therefore, it is my strong recommendation to the Planning Department of Dublin City Council that no planning permission be granted, until additional information is submitted in advance by the applicant and reviewed through a further period of public consultation by third parties, including myself. Given the volume of traffic currently using the Manor Street, Prussia Street route on a daily basis, it is an imperative that Dublin City Council seeks further information from the applicant on this point.

 

In conclusion, I strongly believe that if the Executive of Dublin City Council had not ignored the decision of City Councillors when they included an objective to establish a statutory Local Area Plan for Stoneybatter area in the Dublin City Development Plan 2016 – 2022, a more varied and balanced development would currently be taking place across the Stoneybatter area of Dublin 7. Instead, as a result of this failure of the Council Executive, we face yet another planning application for student accommodation as opposed to housing for families, or seniors or a level of public housing. As a result of this and the issue I have highlighted regarding the lack of detailed information relating to the management of the demolition and construction phase of the project planning permission is being sought for, the only decision, at this stage, that should and can be made by Dublin City Council is for Additional Information to be sought from the applicant.

 

Yours Sincerely,

 

 

Ray

POLICING MATTERS Public Meeting – February 6th @ 7.30pm

Knowing that your home, your street and your community is safe from crime is essential for every household and resident. That is why many people, while talking to me at their homes, have asked for more Gardaí, more visible community policing and why more initiatives and policing measures are needed to counteract anti-social behaviour and other types of crime.

As Chairman of the Dublin Central Policing Division, I have been working with local Garda officers and senior management in An Garda Siochana to secure more investment in resources and personnel. New Garda vehicles have been provided over the last number of years. In 2018, 81 new Gardaí were allocated to our area and started work in Store Street, Mountjoy and Bridewell Garda Stations. 18 new Sergeants took up duty in October 2018 and new Inspectors were appointed prior to Christmas. I can now also confirm, following my meeting with Assistant Garda Commissioner, Pat Leahy, that similar increases in Garda personnel will be made throughout 2019. Furthermore, the Assistant Commissioner has committed to me that each of these new GARDAI will be assigned to Community Policing.

I have therefore organised a public meeting on Wednesday, February 6th @ 7.30pm in the East Wall Youth Club (St. Mary’s) on Strangford Road.

This meeting will focus on:
• The allocation of these new GARDAI across East Wall & the North-East Inner City.
• Providing an update on the Small Areas Community Policing Initiative.
• Policing in your area.

I hope that you will be able to join us on Wednesday evening next in the East Wall Youth Club from 7.30pm.

If you have any queries in relation to this or any other local matter, please do not hesitate to contact me.
