Footbridge over the Brookstream, North Beach, Rush

COMHAIRLE CONTAE FHINE GALL

FINGAL COUNTY COUNCIL

BALBRIGGAN/SWORDS AREA COMMITTEE MEETING

[Services A – Operational Matters]

Thursday, 14th February 2019

ITEM NO. 79



Motion: Councillor B. Dennehy

"This Committee calls upon the Chief Executive to prioritise the installation of a

foot bridge over the Brook Stream, Rush as a stand-alone project, due to the fact

that absolutely no progress has been gained for the project by either being part

of the coastal erosion project or in its previous incarnation as the coastal Walk

Way, yet in the meantime, permissions are being granted up stream which

increase the volume of surface water in the stream making crossing it even

harder."

Report:

Fingal County Council Development Plan contains a specific objective to develop

a Coastal Greenway from Newbridge Demesne to North Balbriggan. A Consultant

is being appointed by the Planning and Strategic Department to design this

coastal greenway and the feasibility of including this location in a possible route

for the footpath and cycle way will be explored as part of the design process.
