Public Meeting Confirms Support

July 2002: Booterstown Community Centre supports S2S

A motion calling on Dun Laoghaire Rathdown County Council and Dublin City Council to include a continuous seafront promenade and cycleway in the revisions to the Development Plans was proposed by Anne Brady and adopted at a meeting of Booterstown Community Council on 1st July 2002.

The meeting was attended by over 50 residents and 4 public representatives, including Mary Hanafin TD, Niamh Breathneach CC, Barry Andrews TD and Fiona O’Malley TD. The vote followed a presentation to the meeting by S2S of the proposed promenade and cycleway. Many people spoke in favour of the proposal and several offered to assist in the campaign. The Booterstown Community Council had itself proposed a coastal walk and improved access to the bay in its own submission to DLRCC in respect of the Coastal Plan.

The Booterstown Community Council is one of the most broadly based and active community groups in the DLRCC area and its support will give a further significant boost to the S2S campaign.
