I have spent the last few months pressing the Council to begin improvement works in the Knightswood estate in Santry. Following a meeting in July it was agreed that the entrance would be cleared of weeds, the area under the trees cleared and the area at the back of the estate cleared out.
The Council have now informed me that work to the front of the estate has been scheduled as part of the winter works list which takes place when grass cutting has ceased for the season. It was agreed that wood chip mulch would be deposited under the trees for the residents to spread which would help supress weeds. This will be delivered when the tree crew are next in the area carrying out essential tree works.
The area to the rear of the estate under the trees will be cut back as part of the winter shrubbery programme. All of these works should take place over the next month or so weather permitting.
