Selected from the minutes of Sligo County Council ordinary meeting for December 2008 relating to the Strandhill area :

taking in charge

10. TAKING IN CHARGE OF OCEAN LINKS ESTATE, STRANDHILL;

Proposed by Councillor D. Healy McGowan
Seconded by Councillor T. McLoughlin

“To ask that Sligo County Council begin the process to Take in Charge the estate Ocean Links in Strandhill”.

In Response Mr J. Murphy SEO stated  the following;

This development consisting of 71 houses at Carrowbunnaun, Strandhill, Co. Sligo is practically completed with a small number of houses remaining to be finished.  There is considerable site works required to bring this development to a satisfactory standard where it can be considered for taking in charge.  The Council has initiated legal proceedings against the developer in respect of his failure to satisfactorily complete this development.  The case was adjourned on a number of occasions and was listed for further hearing at Sligo District Court on 27th November, 2008.  At the hearing, the Solicitor for the developer asked for the case to be adjourned as funds had now been made available to his client to complete the development (letter from Bank was given to the judge).  The solicitor for the Council opposed the adjournment and requested that the case be heard due to the concerns of the residents and the number of adjournments that had already been given.  The judge, however, granted the adjournment to the hearing of Sligo District Court on 12/02/09.  In granting the adjournment he advised the developer’s solicitor that he required a substantial amount of work to be completed by that time.  The matter will be kept under review.  It is therefore not proposed to begin the taking in charge process at this stage.

National School Road Safety

14. HEALTH AND SAFETY OF THE CHILDREN OF STRANDHILL NATIONAL SCHOOL;

Proposed by Councillor D. Healy McGowan
Seconded by Councillor A. Higgins

“To ask the County Manager, what provisions do Sligo County Council intend to put in place for the health and safety of the children of Strandhill National School regards the access of the school”.

In Response Mr T.  Carroll SE stated the following;

This area is within a 50KM/H speed limit zone.  Two road ramps have been provided along the front of the school which slows down traffic in the area.  There is severe traffic congestion at the school during opening and closing times.  There appears to be no problem at other times.

A pick up / set down area at the school together with traffic management is required to facilitate school traffic.  Sligo County Council prepared designs for a pick up / set down area in front of the school and met the School Principal, Parents Associations Representatives and Councillors with a view to assisting them in solving the problem.

The provision of the pick up / set down facility is the responsibility of the school.  Sligo County Council has no funds at present to do any further works in the area.

Do you want to grow your own fruit and vegetables?

A number of people in Strandhill have already expressed an interest, and it would seem that the next natural step would be to discuss an allotments project for Strandhill with  local elected representatives.

Failing that – we might be able to make contact with a local land owner who might be interested in a short term rental or lease?

For more details, please contact Kevin at  071-9168825.

Update : The Get Ireland Growing website (from the Green Party) launched this morning – lots of resources and information about growing your own fruit and vegetables.

In Response Mr T. Carroll SE stated the following;

This project can be considered in context of 2009 Roadwork’s Programme when being considered at local area electoral meeting in February 2009.

public toilets – not sure who is wasting time here; either the councillors who presumably already  know that “public toilets” have been notionally available at the sea front for the last 9 years or so and are this mischief making, or council powers that be – that deem it unimportant to ensure that signage makes the public aware of this fact….this is silly buggers stuff.

42. PUBLIC TOILETS IN STRANHILL;

Proposed by Councillor I. Henry
Seconded by Councillor D. Bree

“To ask this Council have they plans in place for public toilets in Strandhill”.

In Response Mr T. Carroll SE stated the following;

The toilets in the maritime centre are public toilets.  At the time the maritime centre was built in Strandhill, a decision was made, and agreed by the County Council and the Community Development Association that the public toilets would be demolished in the public car park and provided instead, downstairs in the maritime centre.  It was agreed that improved signage would be provided.
