JRA News April 2016

Following Easter Celebrations, we had a great Tidy up day with lots of helps out from around the estate.  We were lucky with the weather and great to see the bunches of helpers of all ages out and about across all the roads in our 750+ Estate. A sincere thanks to all those who turned up and worked their roads. A lot were camera shy!

We found a wide range of things from bits of carpet, a packet of ham, someone’s kitchen panelling fly tipped at Johnstown Park to a poor blackbird freshly passed away. You may have noticed we also had our first grass cut of the year by our contractor.  Our thanks to An Taisce National Spring Clean and Dún Laoghaire-Rathdown County Council for their support. I think you’ll agree looking around today the result is fantastic!

Security has been a key focus for us given the increase in Robberies including the Centra robbery on Johnstown Road.

Residents put a lot of objections for the Rochestown Avenue planning ref D16A/0111 ,which is trying to gain access onto Auburn Road!  More is on the dlrcoco planning site where you can see all the objections.  Planning was refused on the 19th of April to our great relief.
