Re: Re: Dun Laoghaire Plage
AngryBog, I agree with you on the record of DLRCoCo – they can’t even keep the public toilets on the East Pier open, but they can install parking meters on residential streets out in the burbs and introduce clamping.
The beach proposal has to be viewed in the context of the baths/seafront redevelopment, long promised. Many of the baths protesters wanted a swimming facility, the council sub-committee agreed that such a facility should be included in the final plan. Beach should augment whatever else they propose for the baths themselves – the council are committed to spending money on this area anyway. Reinstating the baths alone to dodge the political heat would be “a poxy vanity project“, wasting public money on a facility few people would ever use – unless it can be incorporated into a larger amenity with wider appeal.
