Letter to Fingal Development Board about Howth Junction access

Arising from a report to the Fingal Development Board at its meeting today, I have written to relevant Board members and staff asking them to get involved with the problem at Howth Junction.

To: Margaret Richardson,  Ciaran Byrne, PJ Howell , Eithne Mallin

Dear Margaret, PJ, Eithne, and Ciarán,

I refer to Margaret’s report to todays FDB meeting.

I note the first paragraph in relation to the statutory obligations on public sector organisations and the second paragraph on the responsibility of the CBD under Local Government Circular LG02/07.

I would like to draw your attention to a longstanding problem with Iarnród Éireann’s blocking of access from Howth Junction to Baldoyle Industrial Estate including the Fás training centre.

The story to date is documented at the following links on my website.

At the moment, a ruling from ABP and enforcement action from Dublin City Council are awaited.  I would hope FDB will engage with this problem created by a statutory body.
