Seventy-two complaints made to council over car-parking issues
THERE have been 72 complaints made to South Dublin County Council over car-parking issues in estates in the last 18 months.
At the July monthly meeting of the council, Fianna Fáil councillor Teresa Costello asked how many complaints had been made to the local authority in relation to car-parking issues in estates.
In response, the council outlined that there is a “significant number” of contacts received annually about car-parking issues from a “myriad” of different sources.
These sources include through customer care, members’ reps, and council meeting items among others.
As the question put forward by Cllr Costello “refers specifically to complaints received in relation to car-parking issues in estates”, these matters are managed through the Traffic Management Centre, or the roads department, and Traffic Management Meetings.
From January 2021 to the end of May this year, there has been a total of 72 contacts made to the council relating to car-parking issues across four local electoral areas (LEA).
Independently, Tallaght had the highest number of contacts made, coming to 16 overall while there was 15 received from the Clondalkin LEA.
The Firhouse-Bohernabreena and Rathfarnham-Templeogue LEAs were merged for the figures, with 32 complaints being received by the council from those areas.
