Press release issued on behalf of the residents of Farrankelly Close on Sunday, July 26th 2020…
A number of residents in Farrankelly Close have expressed disappointment with Wicklow County Council, who, they claim, did not adequately heed any of their concerns regarding a new pedestrian access route recently constructed at their estate.
Many residents are concerned that given the location of the new ungated access ramp from the main playing area which now leads straight onto a main road, their children are at risk and in danger of being knocked down.
A residents’ spokesperson stated, “Wicklow County council need to heed our concerns regarding our children’s safety and ensure their playing environment is a safe one. We as an estate have put so much work into that green area to make it look aesthetically pleasing and now part of it has been left to overgrow and another is home to a great big wall of concrete. With no added street lighting, this wall is likely to attract graffiti and anti-social behaviour.
An outcome that will not only effect Farrankelly Close but the surrounding community too.”
Echoing the residents’ concerns, independent councillor Mags Crean concluded, ” Wicklow County Council need to heed the concerns raised by the residents committee, who have spent many years maintaining, planting and tending to this area.”
