Question: Councillor B. Dennehy:
"To ask the Chief Executive what plans are in place for planting in the Town of Rush
Spring bulb planting was carried out at the entrance to Kenure Avenue and within
the woods at the end of 2014. These flowers should be visible very soon.
Following consultation with Rush Tidy Towns we have scheduled some specimen tree
and hedge planting within Kenure Woods. There is further tree planting planned
within St Catherines Estate following consultation with the local residents association.
We have included the provision of additional trees for St Catherines National School
for their ongoing school environmental projects. Hedge planting is also scheduled for
Tayleurs Point following requests from the residents association and finally some
open space tree planting is scheduled for Clifflands estate as a number of street
trees have been removed as part of our ongoing tree maintenance works.
