DCC no longer using chemical weed killers


You may have noticed that our area and in fact the Northside of Dublin in general is not looking too good due to the huge amount of weeds growing on our footpaths and in the gullies on our roads.

On checking with DCC Cabra Office we were advised that they are not using chemical weed killers due to ongoing litigation by the equivalent of council staff in the US and Europe. Many of us will welcome this decision for the safety of council workers.

We would like to encourage residents, where they are able, to clear the gullies and footpaths outside their own houses and perhaps to help out elderly neighbours who may not be able to do this for themselves.

We would also encourage Dublin City Council to make the situation known to residents of Dublin by starting a social media campaign and encouraging residents to take responsibility for the area outside their own homes.

Navan Road Community Council

Navan Road Community Council was set up in 1968 to help bring together community groups and sporting groups, so that they would have one voice when trying to get things done in the community. These days the NRCC lobbies Dublin City Council and local representatives in relation to issues such as traffic, planning and policing to name a few.
