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 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
The recent planning application by Lidl for the redevelopment of the derelict site in the middle of Castleknock Village has been refused by Fingal County Council. Lidl have appealed this decision to An Bord Pleanala. There is an enormous level of community opposition to this proposal. Also all public representatives are unanimous in their opposition. The planning proposal would exacerbate chronic traffic issues in Castleknock Village and the surrounding estates and would compromise the Castleknock Architectural Conservation Area.
I recently supported a motion to install pedestrian lights on the Porterstown Road at the section of road at Castleknock GAA Club. Currently, the road has an uncontrolled pedestrian crossing which needs to be upgraded to the proper system of traffic management which will be safer for all. This upgrade will progress next year subject to funding.
I was delighted to attend the opening of St. Catherine’s Park on the evening of Wednesday the 21st of May. It is a brilliant amenity for everyone in the community and it is a symbol of the huge level of community activism in progressing this over the last number of years.
I have made representations to Fingal County Council to clean up the overgrown foliage and trees along the road to St. Catherine’s Park from Laraghcon which obstructs proper pedestrian fluidity.
A number of residents have contacted me about their oversized or overgrown trees on the public roads/area around their home that need to be pruned/inspected by the Council. There is a Winter Works Tree Program every year that commences in the Autumn/Winter period. It is important to have your tree inspected before this commences. You can register your tree for inspection if you contact the Operations Department on 01-870 4599/CasMulOpArea@fingal.ie or feel free to contact me if you have any questions/queries.
I tabled a motion at the recent Area Committee Meeting of the Council to improve the traffic management system along the both Clonsilla Road and the Coolmine Road as well as the interface between both roads. The Senior Executive Traffic Engineer is going to examine this in the coming weeks with the Traffic Section of the Gardaí and I will keep you informed of any progress on this.
