Extinguishment of Public Right of Way over a laneway located at 17-32 Castilla Park, Clontarf, Dublin 3

Closed 20 May 2021

Opened 1 Apr 2021


In accordance with Section 73 (1) of the Roads Act 1993 Dublin City Council hereby gives notice that it is considering the proposal to Extinguish the Public Right of Way over a laneway at 17-32 Castilla Park, Clontarf, Dublin 3.

A request to have the public right of way extinguished was submitted to Dublin City Council’s North Central Area Office by a majority of residents who have properties abutting this laneway. The reason why they are requesting the closure of the laneway is to prevent the ongoing issue of anti-social behaviour and to improve the safety and security of their homes. The proposed method of closure is by means of a lockable gate

The right of way to be extinguished can be viewed on the attached drawing RM36357A.

It should be noted that persons making such representations or objections, may make a request, in writing, to state their case at an oral hearing conducted by a person appointed by the Local Authority for that purpose.

The closing date for receipt of postal submissions is 5pm on Thursday 20th May 2021
