Cllr Brian Dennehy
Extended opening times of Rush Harbour Park Public Toilets
COMHAIRLE CONTAE FHINE GALL
FINGAL COUNTY COUNCIL
BALBRIGGAN/SWORDS AREA COMMITTEE MEETING
[Services A – Operational Matters]
Thursday 14th June 2018
ITEM NO. 72
Motion: Councillor B. Dennehy
"That this Committee calls on the Chief Executive to move the current opening
days of the Public toilets at Rush Harbour Park to all year round opening times
and extend the existing opening hours to as long as possible. The extra opening
hours are required to enhance and facilitate the huge success that the new
Harbour Park Playground has become and it will avoid the public having to use
toilets in commercial premises nearby when the public toilets are closed which is
currently a regular situation users of the playground have to deal with."
The public toilets at Rush harbour opened on 1st June and will remain open
throughout the bathing season from 8.00am to 8.00pm daily.
The development of the playground at this location has proven an extremely
popular visitor attraction which has generated a local demand for public toilets.
The opening of the toilets all year round within existing resources is not feasible
and alternative arrangements are currently being examined.
