MOTION NO. 6

MOTION: Councillor L. O’Toole

“That this Area Committee considers the feasibility of installing angling stands including wheelchair accessible angling stands along the river Liffey in Waterstown Park, Palmerstown. Considering there is an excellent car park facility and good safe pathways down to the waterfront this could be an ideal location for a recreational angling facility.”

REPORT:

An assessment of the banks of the River Liffey in Waterstown Park will be undertaken for the suitability for the installation of angling stands. It should be noted that the river at this location is fast flowing and providing access to a structure which may encourage swimming is something that should be avoided.

Should it prove feasible and desirable the provision of angling stands will be considered in the context of the 2016 Public Realm Improvement Works Programme subject to the identification of the necessary resources.
