Public consultation starts on Dún Laoghaire pedestrianisation, modal filters and greenery

Public consultation has kicked off on the Living Streets Dún Laoghaire project, which includes pedestrianisation of George’s Street, modal filters at a number of locations and a substantial amount of new urban greenery.

Last month IrishCycle.com reported on the details of the project and councillors’ reactions, including the project being described as “Marmite” with some people disliking it and others loving it. Some councillors objected to key parts of the project while claiming they were not against the project, others said the project was minor compared to the overall change needed in terms of climate action.

...I'm sorry to disrupt you while you're reading this article, but without messages like this, IrishCycle.com's reader-funded journalism won't survive. With 676k views so-far this year, it's not just "avid cyclists" that this website reaches. But the number of subscribers is around 0.6% of readers. This large gap between readers/subscribers is standard for non-paywall reader-supported journalism, but IrishCycle's journalism needs more support. Don't delay, support monthly or yearly today.

As well as the article covering the overall detail, this website also reported how a councillor walked out of the meeting after refusing to withdraw a comment claiming a video played at a meeting by officials was “propaganda”.

The public consultation page is now live at dlrcoco.citizenspace.com where you can find the reports, drawings, and presentations including photomontages. The consultation will run from November 2nd to December 14th 2023.
