DCC must work with residents of Constitution Hill to improve living conditions – Boylan
Sinn Féin Dublin City Cllr Janice Boylan today described the conditions that the residents in Constitution Hill are living in as ‘an absolute disgrace’. Following a meeting today in Parnell Area Office with residents, Councillors and DCC officials, Cllr Boylan has urged DCC management to heed the reasonable requests from residents of the flat complex.
Cllr Boylan said:
“A very active and articulate group of women, men and children have come together to say ‘no more’.
“No more to their flat complex being neglected by Luas, DIT and Dublin City Council; no more to their needs being brushed aside; no more to the lives of their children being put at risk.
“We have a situation where these residents highlighted multiple issues two years ago outlying their concerns and almost foreseeing the many issues that have now arisen. For example, one of the issues is that the children of the flat complex do not have a safe play area. This is a real concern and the need to have a play facility in the complex is of utmost importance.
“The residents have my full support in looking for their reasonable requests to be met and I would do all within my capacity as a Dublin City Cllr to assist them.
“To this end, I have organised another meeting for the residents this Tuesday at 5pm in the Macro Centre.
“I will work with all stake holders concerned to have the 3 main issues addressed; a play area for the local children, gates on the blocks for the safety and security of the residents and for the urgent renovation of one of the vacant units to be made available for habitation.”
