Strand Rd. Sutton Car Park proposal

The majority in the Area Committee agreed to put a proposal for a new car-park at Bottle Quay, Strand Rd., Sutton on public display.  I didn’t agree with the proposal because I feel the money involved is needed for maintenance works to the rights of way and providing signage to the rights of way.  The public display is at Baldoyle Library and the Council offices in Swords until 21st June. I have asked for the documents also to go on display at Howth Library Comments must be made by 5th July. I have scanned the documents and attach them below.

Planning & Development Act 2000
Planning & Development Regulations 2001
In accordance with Part VIII of the Planning and Development Regulations 2001,
Fingal County Council hereby gives notice of its intention to provide a car park for 16
cars, including 1 disabled parking space, at Bottle Quay, Sutton.
The car park is to be located on the seaward side of the access road from Strand Road
to the Cliff paths and it will be surfaced with buff coloured tarmacadam. The sea side
boundary will be a 500mm dry stone wall which will allow views over Dublin Bay.
The land^ward boundary will be the existing hedgerow which will be reinforced with
a low stone wall and additional planting of hawthorn in the hedgerow. The access
point to the car park will have a height restriction barrier provided. The boundary
between the car park and the cliff paths will be secured with another dry stone wall
with an electronically controlled (swipe card, proximity card or similar system) to
permit access for maintenance machinery and for the residents of the Martello Tower.
The existing hard standing which is located to the front of the property that abuts the
Council owned lands, and is currently used as a car park, will be reinstated in grass. A
plastic cell system will be used to reinforce the grass surface so that in the event that
this area is used to park cars, the grass surface will be protected from damage.
Plans and particulars of the proposed development will be made available for
inspection with the exception of public holidays between the hours of 9.00 a.m. to
5.00p.m. Monday to Thursday and 9.00a.m. to 4.30 p.m. on Fridays from Wednesday
24th May 2006 to Wednesday 21st June 2006 (inclusive) at (a) Fingal County
Council Offices, County Hall, Main Street, Swords and (b) Baldoyle Library .
