Fingal Independent - - NEWS -

THE plan­ning process for the re­fur­bish­ment of a youth fa­cil­ity in Rush should be­gin next month, ac­cord­ing to Fin­gal County Coun­cil.

Cllr Barry Martin (Ind) asked the coun­cil to pro­vide ‘a progress re­port on plans for the ren­o­va­tion of Martin’s shop/rush Mul­ti­pur­pose Youth Fa­cil­ity and to out­line the cause of de­lays on the project thus far’.

In re­sponse the coun­cil is­sued a writ­ten re­port, ac­knowl­edg­ing the de­lays but re­as­sur­ing the coun­cil­lor and the com­mu­nity that the work will hap­pen and that money in the coun­cil’s cap­i­tal bud­get has been ring-fenced for the project.

The coun­cil re­port stated that ‘ad­di­tional amend­ments to the orig­i­nal plans were re­quested by other Coun­cil De­part­ments in re­la­tion to the pub­lic realm and in­fra­struc­ture el­e­ments of the project, out­side of the build­ing it­self ’.

The coun­cil said: ‘These amend­ments re­quire mod­i­fi­ca­tions to the plans and this has de­layed bring­ing them to the Area Com­mit­tee...’

The lo­cal au­thor­ity ex­plained in the re­prot: ‘It is now in­tended to bring the Part 8 Plan­ning to the Area Com­mit­tee meet­ing in Fe­bru­ary 2019 and once ap­proved the plans will go on pub­lic dis­play.’

The coun­cil said: ‘Fund­ing to sup­port the re­fur­bish­ment of the build­ing has been ring fenced in the Cap­i­tal Pro­gramme.’
