Cllr Oisín O'Connor

Green Party Councillor for Glencullen-Sandyford, including Ballinteer, Stepaside, Kilternan, Leopardstown, Ballyogan & Glenamuck

Dún Laoghaire-Rathdown County Council are proposing to take the Inglenook Wood estate off Glenamuck Road in charge. “Taking in charge” is the process by which the council takes over public areas from the original developer and takes on responsibility for maintenance and upkeep. It is usually followed on from what the planning permission indicates should be public as opposed to privately managed.

For Inglenook Wood, this relates to the footpaths, the central open space, roads, lighting and water infrastructure. It does not include the green spaces on the right and left as you can see in dark green in the map below and doesn’t relate to private car parking spaces. You can see a PDF of the full map here.

As required by law, the council are undertaking a public consultation before legally taking the areas in charge. It remains open until 9th November 2023. You can make your views known here on taking in charge of Inglenook Wood. If there are any issues that you would like to raise me with directly or you would like to be kept informed of updates on the council’s plans to take Inglenook Wood in charge, you can email me on [email protected].
