FINGAL COUNTY COUNCIL

BALBRIGGAN/SWORDS AREA COMMITTEE MEETING

[Services A – Operational Matters]

Thursday, 14th March 2019

ITEM NO. 28



Question: Councillor B. Dennehy

“To ask the Chief Executive to prioritize the clearing of the Brook stream in Rush

of both debris and over growth so as to keep the stream from flooding made

more likely due to the developments in the area from the rear of Hayestown to

its entry to the sea?”

Reply:

Fingal County Council is limited in terms of the works that can be carried out as

there is only a small stretch of this stream on public lands. However, when

conditions are favourable this section is flailed usually bi annually to attend to

the debris and over growth.
