Enjoy Malahide was featured on page 56 of yesterday’s Irish Daily Star in the Money Matters section for their important role in promoting tourism and business in Malahide.
The article mentioned Malahide Castle, the seaside location and highlighted the range of business here, as well as praising enjoymalahide.com as, “an invaluable reference for both tourists and locals alike”.
Promoting Malahide and its amenities to both locals and potential visitors from home and abroad is the primary aim of Enjoy Malahide, so its fantastic for their site to be recognised for this.
Also, they would like to say a huge thank you to all of their Facebook fans as they were also singled out for the big part they play in helping Enjoy Malahide promote all the events, special offers and news in and around Malahide.

According to the Fingal Independent, councillors have voted in favour of a Local Area Plan (LAP) for lands in Broomfield in Malahide which could bring up to 380 new homes to the area.The 30.8 hectare plot of land, located directly across the road from the main entrance to Malahide Castle, is divided into three main areas for the purposes of the plan.There shall also be an allocation in the plan for a new home for the very active C.A.S.A. group in Malahide, which give respite breaks to people with severe physical and intellectual disabilities.Construction on the site is not due to commence until after the report from the FEMFRAMS study is completed, which shall give the council important information on drainage and flood risk in the area.Sarah Ann McGrath

The first draft of the Fingal Development Plan 2011-2017 proposes to re-zone Brickfields and a section of Seagrange Park, Baldoyle. The re-zoning if it proceeds will change the use of the land from open space and recreational amenity to residential. The proposed re-zoning raises a number of questions.Not least given the surpluse of zoned land in Baldoyle, the unfinished developments, the problems with dangerous hoarding on abandoned building sites and the security problems caused by vacant properties in the area why is there a need to re-zone amenity land for housing? The Council by its own admission has 1,300 hectares of land zoned for development throughout Fingal. It seems to me that the best way to encourage completion of unfinished sites and occupancy of completed sites is to oppose the re-zoning of further land especially when part of this land is in use as a public park.I have submitted a motion to the Council which will be debated in a few weeks seeking to remove this proposed re-zoning from the draft development plan.
Water supply will be restricted across Fingal from late each night till early the following morning, until further notice. Supply disrupted in Strawberry Beds area.

Despite cold and wet conditions over 100 pupils from St Oliver Plunketts, accompanied by their parents walked to school this morning on one of the regular WOW Days (Walk on Wednesday) which encourages children to think green and walk rather than drive to school. The ‘Ollies Walking Bus’ started at Biscayne and by the time it left the Coast Road over 200 pupils had joined it en-route. While the WOW Initiative and ‘Walking Bus’ are a regular happening todays occurance had special significance. To raise funds for schools in Haiti all children were allowed dispense with uniform for the day and wear tracksuits on making a contribution to this much needed appeal. Also cars on the route were encourage to make a donation.As an added bonus the scenes were filmed by RTE for their programme ‘Operation Transformation’ as Malahide man Conor O’Connor is taking part in the show.

The Fingal Draft budget was delivered to councillors a couple of days before Christmas. The Council will meet on January 7th to adopt, amend or reject the budget. If a budget is not adopted on or before January 27th the Council will be abolished and the County Manager will run the Council directly under the direction of Central Government. The draft budget proposes to abolish the bin tag waiver for low income households generating €1 million in additional revenue. The budget also proposes cuts in rates for commercial premises by 10.5% or €14 million. Business owners will further benefit from an anticipated 6% reduction in water charges.This approach means that those who will be hit the hardest are the same people who can afford to pay the least. The very people who have been hit by cuts in social welfare in the recent national budget and by the non payment of the Christmas bonus will be hit again.If the Council was in the red I would not support an approach which sought to make those with the least pay, while those with the most are insulated from cuts. However the Council is not bankrupt - indeed it is ending 2009 with a surplus of 1.5 million euro. The cost of the bin tag waiver is in the region of 1 million euro.This draft budget is an unfair attack on low income households – households who have already suffered from recent government cuts. I will be voting against this draft budget unless this unjust and unnecessary measure is reversed.
