Norfolk Road

On a number of occasions over the past year, and in response to complaints from residents of Norfolk Road, I have asked Dublin City Council to deal with illegal dumping in the lane to the rear of Norfolk Road and Cabra Park.  In May Dublin City Council advised me that "the lane way is question is “not in charge” of Dublin City Council. As such, it is considered that a private, rather than a public, right of way exists at this location It is not possible, therefore, for Dublin City Council to go through the extinguishment procedures as set down in the Roads Act, 1993 to have the right of way extinguished. Dublin City Council is not responsible for cleaning or maintenance.  Accordingly, the physical closure of the above lane way, being a private lane-way and not in charge of the Roads Authority is a matter to be agreed by the local residents. If residents wish to proceed with this closure they will need to seek the permission of the owners of the land. No further information in relation to the ownership of this lane way is available."  For further information please send me an email or contact Mr Fergus Synnott, Dublin City Council, Cabra Area Manager Tel: 222 7400.  Please report illegal dumping to Dublin City Council Dublin Central Litter Hotline 1800 248 348.  Thanks,  Mary
