Arising from a report to the Fingal Development Board at its meeting today, I have written to relevant Board members and staff asking them to get involved with the problem at Howth Junction.

To: Margaret Richardson, Ciaran Byrne, PJ Howell , Eithne Mallin
Dear Margaret, PJ, Eithne, and Ciarán,
I refer to Margaret’s report to todays FDB meeting.
I note the first paragraph in relation to the statutory obligations on public sector organisations and the second paragraph on the responsibility of the CBD under Local Government Circular LG02/07.
I would like to draw your attention to a longstanding problem with Iarnród Éireann’s blocking of access from Howth Junction to Baldoyle Industrial Estate including the Fás training centre.
At the moment, a ruling from ABP and enforcement action from Dublin City Council are awaited. I would hope FDB will engage with this problem created by a statutory body.
