Cllr William Carey has welcomed the news from South Dublin County Council that they have appointed a consultancy team led by Nicholas de Jong Associates – Landscape Architects, to develop a Masterplan for St Cuthbert’s Park, Clondalkin. The team will be working with the Public Realm Capital Projects section to bring the project through to the construction stage. Cllr Carey added, this is a long overdue development that had been delayed due to procurement and contract issues.
St Cuthberts park is situated in the centre of the Bawnogue area surrounded by several estates, including Lealand, Westbourne, Rath Gael Apartments, Melrose, Lindisfarne, Deansrath and adjacent also to Kilmahuddrick, Kilcronan, Castlegrange, Grange View and Oldcastle estates. Cllr Carey continued, that public consultation will be the central to the development of the park. A major element of this project involves community engagement and consultation. The aim is to have proposals developed to bring to Part 8 Planning stage by the end of the summer.
Cllr Carey concluded by saying that according to South Dublin Co. Co. management would like to get the process commenced as soon as possible by carrying out some informal consultation sessions starting with a meeting with the elected members to be held online soon.
