Since my election in 2014 I have been contacted by a number of residents in the ward who expressed concern about the speeding and 'rat-running' in their estates. I have been in regular contact with Minister for Transport, Shane Ross, about this and new legislation has been introduced giving local authorities the power to lower speed limits in certain areas.
In 2015 the Stillorgan Village Area Movement Framework Plan was launched. The purpose of the Plan was to: provide improvements to the Public Realm, which when combined with inventive planning by private Developers/Businesses will ensure and sustain a rich and vibrant Stillorgan Village. develop a place where people living and working in Stillorgan can move around within a network of safe, pleasant and well connected streets, civic spaces, green links and benefit from an improved environment around the village core. provide for an increase in walking, cycling and safer access to Public Transport.
