Refurbishment of Rush Multipurpose Youth Facility in Rush

COMHAIRLE CONTAE FHINE GALL

FINGAL COUNTY COUNCIL

BALBRIGGAN/SWORDS AREA COMMITTEE MEETING

(Services B – Strategic & General Matters)

THURSDAY 13th December, 2018

ITEM NO. 51



Councillor - B. Dennehy

Question:

“To ask the Chief Executive, subsequent to the presentation before the

December area meeting as noted previously to the area meeting, and after the

already outline time of the public display of proposed plans, to indicate the

envisaged timeline of commencing construction works to refurbish the rush

Multipurpose Youth Facility?”

Reply:

Further to the reply to the November Area Committee additional amendments

to the original plans were requested by other Council Departments in relation to

the public realm and infrastructure elements of the project, outside of the

building itself. These amendments require modifications to the plans and this

has delayed bringing them to the Area Committee this month. It is

now intended to bring the Part 8 Planning to the Area Committee meeting in

February 2019 and once approved the plans will go on public display.

Funding to support the refurbishment of the building has been ring fenced in

the Capital Programme.
