The old village of Saggart – Teach Sagart (The priests house), is Irelands fastest growing community. With the population quadrupaling over a short number of years, Saggart, needs community spaces and amenites. I am calling on South Dublin County Council to buy the vacant space in the centre of Saggart Village to create a number of amenities including a village plaza.
Clondalkin is over 1,000 years old! Brú Chrónáin and the 1916 Garden are great, but the council planners have allowed too many red brick buildings. I stand for sustainable planning, e.g. in Clonburris, more pedestrian streets and safe access to heritage buildings.
The private housing market is failing us. Rents and house prices are exorbitant. I stand for an end to land speculation and hoarding; action to tackle dereliction; and building on public land – now!
