FINGAL COUNTY COUNCIL
BALBRIGGAN/SWORDS AREA COMMITTEE MEETING
[Services A – Operational Matters]
Thursday, 14th June 2018
ITEM NO. 42
Question: Councillor M. Quinn, B. Dennehy & D. Smith
“To ask the Chief Executive, on behalf of Cllr. Dennehy, Cllr. Smith & myself, can
the placing of "Kissing Gates" as well as a street light at the entrance to St.
Catherine's Park, Palmer Ave. be included in the Operations Department
program of works at the nearest opportunity, to reduce the instances of antisocial
behavior at this Location?”
Arrangements are being made to install a kissing gate on the footpath between
St. Catherine’s open space and the adjoining Palmer Ave. development to
prevent motorbikes and scramblers from accessing this area.
It is not proposed to install a public lighting column at this location as it would
likely lead to increased levels of antisocial behaviour at this location.
