There are fresh calls for a library and dedicated teenspace to be introduced for Palmerstown under South Dublin County Council’s draft development plan.
David Gardiner, Workers’ Party representative for Palmerstown-Fonthill, said that his party is in the process of submitting an observation about the library and teenspace to be included in the development plan.
“There are parts of the plan that we have been actively campaigning on and are glad to see included, such as the inclusion of the Silver Bridge, while there are other important things, such as building a full-time library for Palmerstown, that have been left out,” said Mr Gardiner.
“We would also like to see the inclusion of a full-time library for Palmerstown, a skatepark and teenspace in Waterstown Park, as well as the ban on heavy goods vehicles on the Kennelsfort Rd weighing over 7.5t to be reduced to 3.5t and regularly enforced,” he added.
Meanwhile the Workers’ Party is also supporting the rebuilding of the Silver Bridge and an underpass to connect Palmerstown village with the rest of the area, as well as improvements for Glenaulin Park/The Gaels.
