About Jack Chambers
Welcome to my website.
My name is Jack Chambers and I am a Councillor representing the people of Dublin West on Fingal County Council.
- I was honoured to receive such a strong mandate from the people and I am passionate about politics and the progression of solutions to the challenges that our communities face. I will continue to represent our community in an open and honest manner and will provide a proactive and committed presence on Fingal County Council.
- I was elected to the Council’s Audit Committee, the HSE’s Regional Health Forum, the Fingal Joint Policing Committee and the Blanchardstown Community Policing Forum. This will greatly help me to give better representation on the issues that affect people.
- I opened a Local Office in the Laurel Lodge Shopping Centre in my role as Local Area Representative and I am keeping this office open as a Fingal Councillor with regular clinics.
- I have been actively involved in many of the local sports clubs throughout my youth and I have have grown up in the Dublin 15 Area having attended St. Brigid’s National School. I have completed an Honours Degree in Law and Political Science from Trinity College and I am currently studying Medicine.
- I hope to provide active representation and articulate any local or national issues of concern to you. I can be contacted at 086-4177335 or email@example.com
At the Local Area Committee the plans for the Park in 2015 were outlined as follows:
1.Commence work on the central Walled Garden through provision of new entrances, paths, seating and planting
2.Further development of the Millennium Community Garden
3.Provide improvements to the Millennium Playground
4.Provide further specimen tree and woodland planting
5.Replace signage within the Park and at entrances where necessary
It is planned to provide five new playing pitches as part of the next phase of the development of Tyrrelstown Park. These will include two GAA, two Soccer and one Cricket pitch. The construction and drainage of the pitches will take place from February 2015.
The Government and the National Transport Authority have approved more hikes in the cost of public transport which will see prices rising by up to 13%.
Many people and commuters in Dublin West will notice a significant dent in their pockets once this latest price hike comes into force. The Government should be encouraging people to use public transport instead of making it less cost effective. These hikes will result in Dublin Bus cash fares being almost 40% higher than they were in 2012, while Rail tickets will also see significant increases. Transport companies have expressed concern about falling passenger numbers, but consistent fare hikes will do nothing to improve the situation.
If this policy continues, fewer people will be able to afford the ever increasing fares resulting in even bigger losses in the public transport sector.
Fingal County Council’s Transportation Department is conducting a review of Speed Limits in Residential Estates and wishes to engage with the community to “ensure that housing estate roads are as safe as possible for pedestrians, cyclists and especially children”. The Council has stated that they would “particularly welcome submissions in relation to the possible introduction of a 30 km/h speed limit in residential areas.” Submissions may be made on or before the 22nd January 2015 by email to firstname.lastname@example.org or in writing to Alan Sherry, Administrative officer, Operations Department, Grove Road, Blanchardstown, Dublin 15.
I want to let you know that a planning application has been received by the Planning Department in Fingal County Council for a retail/residential development by Aldi in Clonsilla.
It is important that the community interest and people’s views and observations are incorporated in any decision made by the Planners. Submissions, observations or objections to this application may be made on or before the 23rd of December.
As your public representative I am providing you with the information below and please note that the full detail of the plan is available online at www.fingalcoco.ie/planning-and-buildings or at the Council’s Civic Offices, Grove Road, Blanchardstown.
