Quinn Eager To Improve Balrothery Estate

Local Sinn Fein councillor Malachy Quinn, has expressed his interest in improving the Balruddery Woods Estate in Balrothery.

At the latest Council meeting, he not only asked the Chief Executive to install an additional two speed ramps, but to provide a public bin as the instances of littering has increased. The councillor felt the speed ramps would curb the instances of speeding in the area, however in their response, the Council noted that ramps are generally not considered in cul de sacs. The Council did agree to examine the location, but stated, “any reports of speeding should be brought to the attention of An Garda Síochána who are the enforcement authority for road traffic issues.” In terms of litter, the Council felt the provision of additional public bins wasn’t necessary. They recognised a total of seven bins already in Balrothery village that are emptied daily, six days a week. “The Balrothery village area is swept on a rota basis, approximately every four to five week, as in all similar areas in the North County,” they explained. “The Council also responds to requests from Balrothery residents to deal with fly tipping incidents.”  “The Balbriggan/Swords Operations Unit continues to support Residents Associations who wish to hold Community Clean-Up Days in their locality through the provision of bags and the removal of litter gathered. Should the residents of Balruddy Woods wish to avail of such support they can contact the Unit directly,” the Council concluded.
