Cllr Jonathan Graham welcomes work to Neilstown shopping centre
Clondalkin Councillor Jonathan Graham has requested that the relevant council department carry out overdue works at Neilstown shopping centre.
“Neilstown Shopping Centre is more than just an integral part of our local economy. It is home to independent and franchise retailers employing local people, a crèche, a post office and several community facilities. It is regularly busy.
A major problem for the centre was the large volume of surface water retention on the carpark. A subsequent problem was that the road gullies at the back of the centre were not plumbed in. This was causing a major nuisance for retailers and locals alike with regular flooding of the area when we had heavy rain.
The area around the centre is in the charge of South Dublin County Council. I submitted a motion instructing the relevant department to carry out the essential remedial work. It is important that this work is to take place. I was happy to table this motion so that Neilstown Shopping Centre is protected and continues to play a vital role in the North Clondalkin community.
I have contacted the retailers to fill them in on work. They are all keen to see it happen as soon as possible.’
