More cameras to be installed in Cherry Orchard area to help safety and security

DUBLIN City Council are currently seeking quotations from security companies as they prepare to introduce additional CCTV cameras in Cherry Orchard.

The cameras are scheduled to be installed in March, in an effort to combat anti-social behaviour, including joyriding.

Speaking at the Dublin South Central ACM last Summer, Area Manager Tony Flynn said the council were “acutely aware of issues” in the area and that he was raising the matter “with the highest levels of the city council.”

Limited CCTV cameras exist in Cherry Orchard, and the council wanted to evaluate their effectiveness before deciding to implement further cameras.

A spokesperson for DCC said: “The funding for the works has not been fully determined as the quotations are currently being sought from suitable companies and the system will have six high-quality cameras.”

In response to a question by Sinn Féin councillor Daithí Doolan last week, the local authority said they were working on a survey to ensure the CCTV signal will be achieved.

A spokesperson for DCC said: “ An issue in relation to the signal for the CCTV has arisen and it will be necessary to carry out a survey to ensure that the CCTV signal from Ballyfermot to Eblana House (Marrowbone Lane) can be achieved.

“This will be necessary as the server is currently located in Eblana House. The survey will identify any issues that may need to be overcome as high buildings or other obstacles can block the signal. A reasonable timeline for the CCTV to be installed and working would be in March 2016.”

Responding to the news, Cllr Daithí Doolan said: “I am delighted that the council have confirmed to me that the CCTV from Cherry Orchard will be up and working soon.

“The residents have campaigned long and hard for these cameras. Finally they are arriving and not a day too soon. I hope they provide the security that residents here deserve. I will continue to work with the community make it a safer place to live, work and play for young and old.”

Dublin City Council said last year they believed there is “no one solution capable of dealing with the issues that exist” in the area.

Limited CCTV cameras are currently located in Cherry Orchard, Cloverhill Road, and the Clifton Road area.
