No infrastructure no Adamstown urge lucan residents

Liffey Champion, 14th July, 2001, by Aideen Sutton

A vote against the adoption of the proposed Local area plan is being called for this week if motions to include sufficient infrastructure and flood management provisions are not voted into the plan.
Finnstown Input Group FIG has received the support of the four local councillors in its campaign to have these motions voted into the plan.
The group believes that these motions are vital to ensure guarantees on transport infrastructure and flood management are in place before the plan is passed.
South Dublin County Council is holding a special meeting on the Adamstown Area plan on Monday (16th) and its expected that a vote on the plan will pave the way for the new town of Adamstown with a population of over 21,000.
The Government recently declared Adamstown Strategic Development Zone (SDZ) which will allow a fast track approach to the planning of the new town. Meanwhile, FIG is campaigning for the support of the rest of the 26 South Dublin County Councillors to have the infrastructure and flood management provisions incorporated into the plan.
And the group – which has been given two week permission period from Lucan Planning Council – has commenced a road site poster campaign along the N4 from the Leixlip interchange to the lights at Palmerstown

‘This is to increase people’s awareness of the effects Adamstown will have on their daily lives’ said FIG PRO, Tom Dowling.
‘The development is as much an issue to North Kildare as West Dublin, traffic issues do not stop at county boundaries and the rapid development of North Kildare was not taken into consideration when South Dublin County Council was preparing this plan.
‘We are asking people to click on our website and a short text will be generated and sent to all councillors and relevant TDs asking them to support the Finnstown Input Group’s motions on Monday’, said Mr. Dowling.
‘If these motions are not included in their entirety we are asking councillors to reject this plan’. Mr. Dowling said that his group is pleased that Leixlip town commissioners made a submission to South Dublin County Council raising similar concerns over transportation demands on existing infrastructure and concerns about the capacity of the proposed Adamstown train station.
‘The town commissioners also raised concerns that the population of Adamstown will use cars to commute’ he said.
‘And they have requested that the Adamstown plan be rejected as premature pending the revision of the necessary infrastructure.
‘South Dublin did not, and is not required to discuss this development with Kildare County Council even though it is on their doorstep’ he added.
