Cllr Graham proposes motions to re zone land in St Mark’s Green and Harelawn/Oatfield interface
Clondalkin Councillor Jonathan Graham proposed two motions to re-zone the remaining land parcels in St Mark’s Green and the Harelawn/Oatfield interface after active projects are complete.
Cllr Graham said:
‘Permission for a library in North Clondalkin and infill housing in St Mark’s Green was granted by South Dublin County Council some time ago.
While both projects were broadly welcomed, there were legitimate concerns raised by residents in both locations. One of them main concerns of residents was that the sites in question would be built on into perpetuity after the initial projects.
While Sinn Féin continue to support these developments, our position has been very clear. We do not believe that all land in North Clondalkin is free to be built on.
For that reason I submitted two motions for inclusion in the South Dublin County CouncilDevelopment Plan 2016-2022.I proposed that the remaining land parcels after these developments be zoned OS- Open Space to ensure that they cannot be built on after these important projects.
I hope that this is effective in dealing with residents’ concerns and ensuring that not every land parcel in North Clondalkin is built on. These areas have more than played their part in ensuring additional housing and facilities for North Clondalkin and cannot be expected to give anymore’.
