May 12th saw the completion of the submissions for the Fingal Development Plan 2023-2029. Thank you to everyone who made a submission. Some were some very strong, not least the Lusk Vision 2030 document from consultants AP&E, which is worth a read on the Fingal County Council consultation portal consult.fingal.ie.
The Love Lusk website was launched last month by Lusk Community Network. We would like to congratulate them on a fantastic job and a great initiative for Lusk. If you are a business owner, get in touch with them to be included on the website as they would like to ensure all groups, clubs and businesses are given a presence, making it a one stop shop for all things Lusk! Check out the website lovelusk.ie.There has been great An Taisce community litter picking activity arranged by Willie McGee over the last number of weeks. Have a look out for the next spring clean date on our Facebook page and join us! We would like to thank Willie for all his efforts.Fingal County Council have agreed to provide funding for extra Christmas lights; however, we need to raise €2400 of our own before we receive the €2000 from FCC. We plan to start a fundraiser in September so keep a lookout.We are very pleased to see that the berm (soil subsidence) on Station Road has been cut back, making the pathway much safer for pedestrians. Many thanks to Cllr Rob O’Donoghue for his representations.Planning permission has been granted for 84 houses on Rathmore Road, with 30 conditions that must be met.We await the lowering of the footpath opposite Butterflies Montessori, which has been delayed due to Covid restrictions. As extra funding has been made available nationally for the provision of bins, we have requested an onsite meeting with FCC to discuss problem litter areas and receive commitment to increase bin numbers. Enjoy the Summer fro all of us in Lusk Action Group.
