NEWS IN BRIEF: Around 7,000 submissions on the Capel St/Parliament St traffic-free scheme have been received from members of the public and businesses, Dublin City Council has said.
“Dublin City Council would like to thank everyone who took part in the recent 3 week public consultation period on the ongoing Capel St/Parliament St traffic-free streets initiative,” the council said in a statement issued this morning.
“The City Council received approximately 7,000 submissions, making this our largest consultation to date. We received a wide range of diverse views which will take some time to carefully analyse. The initiative is being extended by an additional weekend, meaning it will now finish on October 3rd,” said Dublin City Council.
The council added: “When the submissions have been considered, a report will then be prepared for the elected members and detailed planning of the preferred option will be advanced. Any option which is advanced will be subject to further consultation and any necessary statutory requirements.”
