We Asked, You Said, We Did

Here are some of the issues we have consulted on and their outcomes. See all outcomes

We asked

The Part 8 public consultation on proposals to improve Martin Savage Park at Ashtown included the development of an all-weather synthetic astro pitch with associated fencing and flood lighting, flood lighting to the main GAA pitch, the creation of a play zone with swings, slides and climbing equipment, the creation of a community garden with mixed planting, paths and seating, the addition of a perimeter tarmac path, the widening of the existing east west path adjacent the rail line along with bat friendly public lighting and creating two new public entrances to the park. - We asked for your feedback regarding these proposals 

You said

The consultation drew in the order of 2,000 submissions from the public, stakeholders, NGOs and other public and state bodies


The submission from the Department of Housing, Local Government and Heritage dated 12th February  recommended that the City Council carry out a Natura Impact Statement “to consider the possible in combination effects of other presently mooted developments of artificial pitches on playing field sites utilized by the Brent geese in the Dublin area as well as that proposed in the current Part 8 proposal”.


The DoHLGH also recommended that DCC “propose suitable measures to reduce the potential effects of the development proposed on the geese using Martin Savage Park such as the removal of the proposed playground to a different part of the site, the deletion of new footpaths and access points……….so as to minimize possible disturbance of the geese by pedestrians and dogs”.

We did

Dublin City Council therefore decided to withdraw the current Part 8 proposal pending consideration of recommendations as contained in this submission and discussions, as necessary, with the DoHLGH. A report on the outcome of these considerations will be brought to the councillors later this year as well as a timeline for progressing plans for Martin Savage Park.

  • Are you in favour of high quality pedestrian facilities in the city centre? 
  • Do you support the concept of more traffic-free ‘civic spaces’ in the city centre?
