Councillor Devlin requested the Council at an Area Committee Meeting to cut back the over grown bushes and vegetation in Vesey Place, Monkstown:
To ask the Manager when it is planned to cut back and remove a lot of the over grown bushes and vegetation in the park in Vesey Place, Monkstown?
Parks Staff carry out a major clean up of Vesey Gardens open space each year in consultation with local residents including the removal of vegetation which provides cover for anti-social behaviour.
Discussions with residents on overall plans for improvements have taken place on two occasions in the last few years. There is a lack of consensus among residents on how improvements should proceed particularly on opening up the area by the removal of vegetation. However, it is our intention to undertake further pruning and vegetation removal during our 2005-2006 arboriculture programme.
