Question: Councillor D. Smith

“To ask the Chief Executive to provide anti congregation measures at the gap
between Elmwood Drive and Abbeylea in order to tackle anti social behaviour
problems at this location?”


The gap referred to leads to a footpath network that provides permeability
between the various estates and the Rathbeale Road. It is not clear what
solution could be deployed to discourage the alleged congregation of people
without the removal of the mature Leylandii hedge along the perimeter of the
park. Such removal is unlikely to be acceptable to residents. If people
congregating at this location are causing a nuisance this should be brought to
the attention of An Garda Síochána .
