Meakstown growth needs to be catered for – Ellis
Speaking in Leinster House on Wednesday, Sinn Féin TD Dessie Ellis raised the need for a primary school and new community hall and other facilities in the Meakstown Area.
The Dublin North West TD said:
“In the last decade, there has been a big increase in population without additional community resources or school space to cater for the population. The area around Charlestown, Melville, Hampton Woods, Creston, Lanesboro, Seagrove, and Mayeston has grown enormously and will only grow further in the coming years.
“Community facilities need to be prioritised, which can be funded from several sources, for example, the rates from Charlestown Shopping Centre and local development levies.
“The Government must instruct Fingal County Council and the Department of the Environment to ensure that facilities are put in place as the current situation is not good enough.
“I will keep pressure on the Department and the Council to prioritise the Meakstown area for proper infrastructure as is required for a community of this size.”
