Transcript

  • 1.  
  • 2. Inchicore On Track / Closing Statement
    • We entered this scenario:
      • With one days notice in April 2010
      • At an advanced stage in a CIE / Irish Rail planning process that was in existence without reference to our community for the previous 7 years
      • Given a 5 month timeframe to address what was presented as a virtual fait accompli
  • 3. Inchicore On Track / Closing Statement
    • We experienced this situation:
      • As an immediately unreasonable, negative and stressful imposition
      • With disbelief at the absence of appropriate participative and consultative processes with community
  • 4. Inchicore On Track / Closing Statement
    • We responded as a community:
      • By not reacting and respectfully reaching out to CIE / Irish Rail
      • By developing a clear position that was properly communicated in the public domain
      • By securing a mandate from residents
      • By negotiating a formally agreed consultative process with an independent facilitator that was terminated by CIE/Irish Rail
  • 5. Inchicore On Track / Closing Statement
      • By thereafter continuing an open and positive attitude to liaison with CIE / Irish Rail through regular representations and submissions, including that of OTB
      • By preparing written and oral submissions to An Bord Pleanala without any recourse to technical support or costs
      • By representing as best we might the right of citizens and communities to hold critical, informed views and reasonable requests to have the DART Underground proposal scrutinised and amended in the public interest
  • 6. Inchicore On Track / Closing Statement
    • We request that CIE / Irish Rail:
      • Reconsider the haste and poorly conceived manner in which the DART Underground proposal for Inchicore was arrived at – as reflected in the various flaws, errors and omissions from the Railway Order Application and EIS
      • Look again at the rationale and main features of what could become a truly innovative and visionary public transport project
      • Engage in a meaningful way with the IRERA and other strategic partners in a shared and collaborative approach to achieving excellent outcomes
  • 7. Inchicore On Track / Closing Statement
    • We request that ABP:
      • Consider in a fair and progressive manner the veracity of our communities submissions, its distinct body of evidence and reasonable requests for revisions and mitigations
      • Study in depth the simple range of community gain measures proposed here today in the context of existing legislation, enlightened planning processes and the good sense of arising benefits for all stakeholders, including CIE / Irish Rail
      • Append whatever conditions they consider appropriate to the proper realisation of a DART Underground facility in Inchicore
  • 8. Inchicore On Track / Closing Statement
    • We request that DCC:
      • Safeguard the interests of the city, citizens and communities as expressed most eloquently in the values and actions of the Dublin City Development Plan 2011-2017
      • Lead out in the establishment of a holistic and integrated approach to developing a Master Plan for Inchicore within which CIE / Irish Rail become a key player in the design and delivery of a properly planned DART Underground facility and related developments – in partnership with IRERA and other local stakeholders
  • 9. Inchicore On Track / Closing Statement
    • We close
      • In good conscience - having represented our response to the DART Underground proposal for Inchicore - as best we could the sincere views, concerns and aspirations of our community
      • In gratitude to the Inspector, his experts and the staff of An Bord Pleanalá for the time and courtesy extended to our community in making such representations
