A local politician has welcomed the news by Dun Laoghaire-Rathdown County Council that work on a new car park in Foxrock is to begin in November when the tendering process for the construction work has been completed.
According to Cllr Barry Saul (FG) a car park in Foxrock village and within lands of Horse Racing Ireland (HRI) has “been on the cards for over 15 years”.
Cllr Saul said: “During the summer…officials from HRI and the council worked hard to bring this project to completion.”
Cllr Deirdre Donnelly (Ind) welcomed the decision saying: “The business community in Foxrock have suffered greatly due to the lack of parking spaces …. A number of businesses have closed over the p ast few years. One of causes of these closures was the shortage of parking spaces for customers.”
A council spokesperson confirmed to The Gazette that the new car park is to go ahead for Foxrock Village on Horse Racing Ireland lands in November. “This is a Part 8 Project and is currently at tendering stage. It is expected to be early November 2014, before the tender assessment process is finalised and contractors are appointed. Once work commences on this project the council expects it to be completed within three to four months,” the spokesperson said.
Cllr Saul said this car park, once complete, is “vital to the continuation of the local trading community in Foxrock.”
