Services to fit the population
Growing up in Swords I have seen the town explode in size. The pattern has always been: houses first, services second. Yes, we need new homes for families badly in need but we also need to make sure the services are there to meet them. Many local schools are at capacity, as is Beaumont Hospital. We need councillors that understand new services must be lock step with any new development for both new residents and local people.
Parks for people & new greenways
Responsible dog owners should be allowed exercise their pets properly in local parks. I will work to overturn the current byelaw restricting dogs to leashes. Dog fouling, dangerous breeds and irresponsible owners should be the focus of council action. I want to explore the opening up of new greenways connecting Swords to our rural villages as a way to improve tourism and quality of life across Fingal.
Protecting our health & environment
Illegal dumping in the valley and on the outskirts of the town is a menace. The council could do more to deal with it and to catch offenders. I also want to work to minimise the use of chemicals by the council around schools and make sure our playgrounds are safe places.
Better transport to Dublin and locally
MetroLink, MetroLink, MetroLink. We have been waiting too long for this vital transport link. The council can play a stronger role in pressuring government to deliver the Swords to city centre part first. Locally, we need safe segregated cycle lanes to help people get around without cars.
