JRA News June 2016

The footpath and bus stop between the Glenview estate and Granitefield are to be reinstated this month.

As you may be aware the Planning Application for 214-216 Rochestown Avenue was refused by DLRCOCO,
BUT it has been Appealed by the applicants via a submission to An Bord Plenála.  You have as individuals the option to Appeal the Appeal and the Residents committee will also be Appealing the Appeal.  You can download the appeal documents submitted from the DLRCOCO planning website under the same reference as before. There is a 30day timeframe to do this which will be from 10th May .We have submitted a residents appeal against the appeal.

Our volunteers are in the process of getting around all the beds for a summer refresh. The Tidy towns competition inspectors will visit anytime during the month of July . We would welcome and new additional local residents who could help out with the bed maintenance for the odd hour throughout the estate. The monthly committee meeting is this Tuesday so feel free to private message or email info@jra.me with any queries, suggestions or offers to help!

Fingers crossed for great weather for Pedal in the Park In Cabinteely Park Sunday 12th! Don’t forget to join the funhttp://events.dlrcoco.ie/event/bike-week-2016

At our last committee meeting before a Summer break for our volunteer committee, we covered a number of topics including : annual subscription collection’s, speeding and traffic volumes esp. on Auburn, Woodlands and Granville roads, parking issues by the Dr’s Surgery on Granitefield road, the road surface quality continuing to deteriorate on Johnstown road, security for residents, planning appeals, the continued delays to tree cutting for houses on Granville Road and the upcoming Tidy Towns competition in July. As a volunteer committee, we all have taken tasks to pursue during the summer and will continue to call on our councillors and Dlrcoco for their support on these matters for the 750+ houses we represent. Please continue to email us at info@jra.me with any specific details or include us in your direct appeals to the council and councillors.
