Sandymount Village - outdoor dining proposal

Closed 14 May 2021

Opened 30 Apr 2021


Following requests from businesses and the Sandymount and Merrion Residents Association (SAMRA) residents association to consider how to facilitate outdoor dining  by closing one side of Sandymount Green, Dublin City Council wish to obtain people’s views on this proposal as a number of local residents have made their concerns known.

Dublin City Council could facilitate this request by making this side of Sandymount Green Traffic free over the Summer Months, with emergency access still allowed at all times. A loading area would be provided as well as the  relocation of the two disabled parking spaces and the provision of additional disabled parking space nearby, additional bike parking will also be provided. A two week period of consultation will start from 30th April and this will be an opportunity to seek people’s views on this measure and their concerns.
