Get Writing! - Get Active!
We want you to have your own voice on cycling related schemes! We in the Cycling Campaign submit our views on schemes, and regularly meet with agencies and Local Authorities, to put forward our views. But you as an individual can also have your say! It is important that we all work together, in the hope of ensuring that what gets planned is of good quality.
Here below are a series of schemes coming up over the next month for submission, and right now some of our active campaigners are working away, writing furiously on submissions, to meet the different deadlines. The consultation deadlines are listed below in chronological order, with links to the relevant websites. It’s your chance to make a difference, by making a submission on any or all of them! If you do make a submission let us know, and we will monitor what the effect of the submissions will be. We will regularly update this page on our website to keep you in tune with what is happening related to consultations.

09/02/2017 Roscommon Co Co / Draft Special Speed Limit Bye-Laws 2017 Link posted to https://cyclistie.slack.com/messages/consultationslove30/ This is the latest in a series of proposed introduction of lower speed limits. As in many other counties Roscommon are being absolutely literal in their approach to the interpretation of the speed limit guidelines and unfortunately are not proposing to extend lower speeds to Town and Village centres and outside schools. Make you voice heard!
10th February 2017: Kilkenny County Council are exhibiting proposals for a Greenway between Waterford and New Ross.. While most of the scheme is on a disused railway line there are some details that are not very clear such as access to and from Waterford City Centre and New Ross town centre, as well as local access from housing communities!
10th Feb 2017 DTTAS Climate Change & Transport Adaptation Consultation http://www.dttas.ie/public-transport/english/adaptation-plan here is a climate change/transport related consultation. Cycling needs to be in there as well as all the high tech solutions and tax incentives! One to get your teeth into!
17 Feb 2017DLRCC New Bike Parking Standards consultation by DLRCC. http://www.dlrcoco.ie/en/news/general-news-public-consultation-public-no… To get greater and safer bike use good and greater bike parking facilities are required!
17 Feb 2017 Lower Lee Flood Relief Scheme http://www.lowerleefrs.ie/index.php/site/news This might seem unusual, but part of the design of this scheme affects the overall public realm. A submission is being prepared by our colleagues in Cork Cycling Campaign, but why not have your say as well?
Thursday, 23rd February 2017 Fingal / Proposed Part XIII - Snugborough Interchange Upgrade https://consult.fingal.ie/ga/consultation/proposed-part-xiii-snugborough… This is a proposed major change to traffic movements across the N3 at Blanchardstown Shopping Centre and close to National Sports Campus! A good attempt, but flawed!?
2nd March 2017 Barrow Greenway - Cycle/Walking Route through 3 counties, Kildare, Carlow, Laois This is a 115km long proposed ‘Greenway’, which could be a wonderful resource for locals and for tourists. Unfortunately full documentation is not available online as yet and this is something we will be complaining about, as it is a very significant scheme and will engender some opposition from local bodies Laois County Council has most docs online right now at http://www.eplanning.ie/LaoisCC/AppFileRefDetails/1737/0
Thu 09 Mar 2017 Dublin City / Clontarf to City Centre Cycle Route Dublin Cycling Campaign are unhappy with the quality of design on this proposed cycle route. We have major issues with it and were not consulted even though named as a stakeholder. There is a problem right now on accessing details of the scheme online, which is unusual for Dublin City Council, but check out http://www.dublincity.ie/sites/default/files/content/Planning/Documents/… This is a really important proposed new generation cycle route, and needs to have YOUR INPUT. Have a look at it!
