Dún Laoghaire-Rathdown County Council (DLRCC) commenced its “Summer Streets- Dún Laoghaire” scheme on the 5th July 2021. The initiative involved the reallocation of existing public realm spaces through the pedestrianisation of George’s St. Lower and the use of additional outdoor space at Myrtle Square. This required the diversion of vehicle traffic and the reallocation of existing car parking spaces. Before the trial DLRCC undertook non-statutory public consultation from Friday 21st May to Friday 11th June 2021.
A total of 1,103 representations were received via the council’s Citizen Space questionnaire, alongside email responses, on-site meetings and online presentation. Pre-trial consultation showed a significant level of public support, with 70% of the responses supportive.
The current update for the scheme is that following the recommendations of the review we are proceeding with a permanent scheme for Georges Street. A planning scheme is being prepared and it is expected that it will published by Q4 2022’
