Although only in existence since February, Lusk Action Group has been very busy, even through our lockdown, discussing and implementing ways to begin to bring our community’s visions to life.The online survey we undertook gave us a clearer vision of what people in Lusk actually want, with 671 respondents. Please view the results on our Facebook page.
We have been in touch with developers,McGarrell Reilly regularly, and their retail agents, who seem keen to work with the community and are very happy with our survey results, and feel it will help them greatly to make retail work in Lusk. We have expressed people’s many concerns and we hope that we can help achieve a good outcome as development continues.
90% of people said they would like to see a library in Lusk! We have this foremost in our minds and are looking into possibilities at present. It would be an amazing facility for our community.
We are making initial plans to turn Lusk into “Zero waste Lusk”! We would love to hear from anyone who would be interested in opening a zero waste/eco shop. To contact us regarding this matter or any other issue which interests you, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org
We are keeping in touch with Fingal County Council about general housekeeping, litter, removal of dirt heaps etc, and are requesting the development of plantings and the erection of fencing along the river bank on the park/sports hub.We are making initial enquiries into possibilities for developing amenities for the youth of the community, after very clear feedback that this was lacking. Cllr Rob O’Donoghue is part of our committee and brings our questions and requests straight to monthly council meetings. We all share a huge enthusiasm for bettering our town, and growing our community spirit. I think we would all agree that, over the last two months of our lockdown, we have grown as a community. The very best has shone through… generosity, kindness, consideration, compassion and a huge sense of togetherness. We are very proud to say that we are from Lusk and we look forward to all that we can achieve together.
