ITEM NO. 83
Motion: Councillor B. Dennehy
"That the Chief Executive following on the successful inclusion of Rush National
School in the recently published list of new schools due to begin construction in
2016 members of the operations department along with other interested stake
holders in Fingal County Council convene a site meeting with RNS Board of
Management as early as possible in order to progress the required traffic
management plan covering Sundrive Road, Walsh's Lane, Channel Road, Daly's
Lane and other surrounding traffic and pedestrian routes affected by the
temporary placement of the School, Pupils and staff in a new temporary site on
the Channel Road during the construction period which will also allow the
required works to be included in the programme of works for 2016."
Planning permission was granted in 2013 for the demolition of the existing Rush
National School, including the removal of existing temporary accommodation,
and to construct a new 2-storey school building on the same site.
Condition 9 of the grant of permission by An Bord Pleanála, shown below,
requires the submission and agreement of a construction management plan
prior to the commencement of construction. This construction management
plan includes the routing of construction related traffic, measures to obviate
traffic queuing, alternative arrangements for pedestrian’s and vehicular traffic as
well as other construction related issues.
On receipt of the construction management plan a meeting with the Board of
Management and other stake holders will be organised.
