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
Crime in Our Community
Castleknock Hotel Wednesday 11th February 8pm
Guest Speakers: Niall Collins TD,Justice Spokesperson
& Local Gardaí
Crime continues to rise in our community. I am holding a public meeting so that people can have a platform to engage with the Gardaí.
Fianna Fáil is developing its policies on Law & Order and invites you to have an input into this process.
I look forward to seeing you on the night.
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.
Funding has been recently approved by the HSE for a new primary care centre that received planning permission last year. The progression of this facility will provide a multifaceted delivery of healthcare in the community and it ill include a new Primary Care Centre, a Child & Adolescent Mental Health Team, an Early Intervention Team, and accommodation for a dental surgery and a GP surgery.
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.
