Cllr. KIERAN BINCHY Kieran’s Priorities as a Councillor

• Proper planning and development, serving the current and future needs of the community • Cohesive transport policy, with suitable speed limits, integrated bus and Luas, and proper cycle lanes • Efficient and fair Council housing policies, serving those most in need • The development and promotion of the inner city commercial zone, so that it remains the heart of our city • The active use of empty and under-used buildings to foster entrepreneurship and social and cultural activity • Transparency and grassroots participation as the bedrock of all Council policy and action

Kieran’s Priorities for the South East Inner City

• The dismantling of the Dublin Docklands Development Authority, replacing it with an accountable body suitable for our current circumstances • Support for the work of local community centres and community groups, to protect those most affected by national cutbacks • The protection and promotion of the Grand Canal, Sandymount Strand and the Dodder walkway as recreational amenities • The further development of the Dublin Bike scheme into the Docklands, Ringsend, Irishtown and Sandymount, and increased pedestrianisation around Grafton St. • The protection of the Poolbeg Peninsula from unsuitable development, in particular the incinerator • Working with the Council, residents, businesses and landlords in areas such as Portobello and Ringsend to ensure we all enjoy clean streets, shopfronts, yards and gardens

I was recently co-opted to replace Senator Catherine Noone. I would like to pay tribute to Catherine Noone’s work on the Council, and I wish her all the best for her new role in the Seanad. I am honoured to be representing the people of the South East Inner City on the Council, and I look forward to working for you on Dublin City Council. Please get in contact if there are any issues which you want to raise with me, any queries I can assist with, or any community groups with which you would like me to meet. Kind regards,

Kieran Cllr. Kieran Binchy
