Q85.    COUNCILLOR CIERAN PERRY
            Can the Manager confirm the following:

  • That there have been no tenders, expressions of interest or similar interest sought by Dublin City Council in relation to their Waste Management Service,
  • That no change to the current Waste Service provision will be decided without discussion with the elected representatives on Dublin City Council.

 

CITY MANAGER’S REPLY:
            A full report on this issue is being submitted to the City Council at its meeting on 3rd           October 2011.

 

Q86.    COUNCILLOR CIERAN PERRY
            Can the Manager provide me with a copy of the Multi Agency Group on Homeless Sex Offenders December 2010 presentation to the City and County Managers Association (CCMA) Housing Group?

 

CITY MANAGER’S REPLY:
This question has been withdrawn by Councillor Perry.

 

Q87.    COUNCILLOR CIERAN PERRY
            In relation to the National Monument:
Can the City Manager request a viewing by Councillors Ring & Perry, of the bricks removed from the 17-18 Henry Place, Dublin 1, site in January? I have requested a viewing from the current owners of the site but they have informed me that they will only deal directly with Dublin City Council,
Can the Manager report on any progress made on my request for him to organise a meeting between representatives of the relatives of the 1916 signatories, Cllr Ring, Cllr Perry and Dublin City Council’s Conservation Department and Heritage Department. This was agreed in reply to my question (Q.57) to the July City Council Meeting.

 

CITY MANAGER’S REPLY:
The salvaged bricks removed from the walls of 17-18 Henry Place are the property of Chartered Land.  Dublin City Council has no function in relation to these bricks.

The Area Dangerous Buildings Inspector has however inspected the said bricks at the invitation of Chartered Land.

 

Q88.    COUNCILLOR CIERAN PERRY
            Can the Manager detail progress in the redevelopment of Fairview Park?  Can he outline any delays in progressing this project and can a clear timescale for future works be provided?

 

CITY MANAGER’S REPLY:
The Parks & Landscape Services Division is currently at the latter stages of the procurement process regarding the playground, bandstand and seasonal bedding improvement works at Fairview Park.  A report has been forwarded from the Parks and Landscape Services Division seeking the appropriate managerial approval with respect to the preferred contractor for the project.  On receipt of this approval, a letter of acceptance will be forwarded to the firm who will arrange the completion of the contract documentation.  The firm is then required under the contract to commence on site works within 20 working days, which generally consists of site occupation works.  The programme on site is 21 weeks.

The temporary playground will remain in place and will be maintained until the permanent playground is available for use.
