Inchicore Regeneration Forum: consulting on the St Michaels redevelopment. Express your views.

This is being set up by Kilmainham Inchicore Network (KIN) to get the views of residents about the proposed redevelopment of the St Michael’s Estate or what is now being called the DCC Emmet Road site now.

There is a proposal published here. This forum is one way to allow the community and representative groups to have their say. There are spaces for representative associations and other local groups. IEG hope to have a rep on the forum.

So, if you have views and want them represented by the IEG, please reply to these questions (we will collate and bring them to the Forum on your behalf).

– Do you agree with the proposed plan for the St Michael’s site?

– If not, what would you change?

– What else would you like to see being done in the area, problems to be fixed, suggestions of changes, improvements.

This is neither a final or definitive list of questions, but it gives our proposed rep something to work with when the meetings kick off.

(BTW) if you’re in another group and want to apply to represent them on the forum, you can do so here: deadline October 23rd http://www.kilmainham-inchicore.ie/…/inchicore-regeneration… )

This is not the only way to make your feelings known – there are councillors, TDs and council officials you could contact as well too. The important thing is to get as clear a view of the concerns and good ideas of as many existing residents as possible.

please EMAIL your replies to us. inchicoreenvironmental AT gmail DOT com

Climate change and Inchicore

Image result for climate change report

Yes, it seems like such a huge topic for a small area to consider but with the grim report this week and the budget doing nothing about it, it’s timely to start thinking.

So the first step is gathering a group of people who are interested can exchange information about what steps can ordinary people do to reduce their own impact on climate change, especially with a local emphasis, e.g. getting information on locals supports to reducing plastic pollution and increasing reuse, how to facilitate shopping more locally, maybe small campaigns to encourage local shops to use less disposables, sharing of ideas and tips to reduce environmental impact of our lives.

If you are interested in being part of this please email us at inchicoreenvironmental@gmail.com we’ll introduce you all to each other. It might be a handy one to get involved in if litter-picking (perfectly understandably) isn’t your bag.

BTW to our colleagues in Drimnagh and Kilmainham Environmental groups maybe you want to join in on this as well too so feel free to forward on.

Our next clean-up October 20th: another joint effort

MeetingPointUnion8Our October clean-up is next Saturday week October 20th and it’s another neighbourly collaboration.

We are giving Kilmainham Environmental (kilmainhamenvironmental@gmail.com) a ‘dig out’ on their very first cleanup. Meeting at 9.45am near the Dublin Bikes on Emmet Road/SCR/4 star pizza. We’ll split up with groups heading off in all directions, depending on numbers. It would be great to spread the word and give our neighbours a nice start.

Afterwards the Patriot’s Inn up the road have very kindly offered us tea and coffee for all, and probably the odd biscuit too.
