New Road Donabate

I have received a number of reps regarding issues on the New Road, Donabate – particularly the stretch from Scrum Diddleys Ice Cream Shop and the Macari’s Takeaway.

Fingal County Council have met with the Gardai on site and a number of fines have been issued to motorists for dangerous/illegal parking.

The proprietors of the businesses in question have been given traffic cones to place at locations where parking is especially discouraged. Fingal County Council have also had discussions with the business owners about the issue of litter in the area and the need to keep the area clean.

An extra litter bin has been provided by one of the shops and is emptied daily by them.

The Council are also considering extending the double yellow lines on New Road but no decision has yet been taken. The Council have also met with the management company of the adjacent private housing development and advised them on measures which they can take on their property to prevent unauthorised parking.
